Scottish Labour’s education spokesperson Iain Gray MSP said:

"This whole process has been a shambles.

"The principle of the named person scheme was a good one but it has been destroyed by the incompetence of successive SNP ministers.

"They lost control of the policy, lost the confidence and support of practitioners, parents and the public, then lost the challenge in the supreme court.

"To have to abandon one bill and repeal another in one day is an unprecedented humiliation for John Swinney.

"It is not the first time either – he had to drop his flagship education bill.

"John Swinney was meant to be a “safe pair of hands”, but he has dropped the ball yet again.”
