Tavish Scott reshuffles his team

The Press Association reports:

Newly elected Lib Dem leader Tavish Scott has announced a reshuffle of his backroom team.

Leadership rival Mike Rumbles has been appointed chief whip, having previously been rural affairs and environment spokesman. Ross Finnie, also a contender for the top job, remains party health spokesman.

Glasgow MSP Robert Brown becomes justice spokesman, taking over from Margaret Smith who moves to education. But former leader Nicol Stephen will not have any shadow brief in the new team.

J. Arthur MacNumpty has further details and some reasoned comment.
