Has the First Minister taken in any refugees as she promised too much personal publicity she would????
As per your previous request of 13 March 2016, I can confirm the answer remains the same. There are currently no refugee families staying with the First Minister as there has been no requirement for this assistance to date. The First Minister has made it clear that she would be willing to take in refugees, if necessary, like the many thousands of Scots who have already pledged their support. This remains the position.
