Coronavirus: Scotland can’t return to 'business as usual'

Scotland will “lose a generation” if it attempts to return to business as usual after lockdown, says Labour’s Anas Sarwar.

The Glasgow MSP called for state intervention to “retrain and re-skill” the workforce.

He told BBC Debate Night that the 1980s showed how economic downturns cost lives.

He said: “People were put on the unemployment scrapheap and many of them went on to never work again.”
