Douglas Ross Q&A: New Scottish Tory leader ready to take on SNP

Newly appointed Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross faces a daunting political agenda in the coming months. Whether it’s the economic and public health implications of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, quelling a rise in support for Scottish independence, or setting out his stall for next year’s Holyrood election, Ross will not be afforded the luxury of settling into his new role.

Currently an MP for Moray, Ross says he plans to keep his place in Westminster after “making a commitment” to constituents to see out his five-year term. He plans to contest his old seat – the Highlands and Islands – at next year’s Holyrood election, having previously represented the area in the Scottish Parliament.
