FSB in Scotland on Ruth Davidson’s resignation

Reference number: SPUR2908

Ruth Davidson MSP has resigned as leader of the Scottish Conservatives. The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) paid tribute to her contribution.

Andrew McRae, FSB’s Scotland policy chair, said: “It is more than disheartening that Scottish frontline politics is losing a straightforward, pro-business voice like Ruth Davidson’s, especially during this period of turmoil.

“She has been a staunch friend of the FSB during, and before, her tenure as leader. We fully understand and respect her reasons for stepping back from the forefront of politics, but many will miss her contribution to Scottish public life.”
