Scotland’s cultural secretary has pledged that full capacity events will be allowed to return “as soon as possible” once the country emerges from the “acute” phase of the Omicron variant.

Angus Robertson has insisted “there will not be a minute wasted” to allow venues and events to reboot on a viable basis when the public health picture improves.

Mr Robertson added: “We’re trying to navigate a difficult route between trying to stay safe, remaining viable and getting the financial measures in place to do both of those things.

“We need to look at all options to consider the route back to the new normality we will have as we get beyond this acute phase of the Omicron variant.
