Commenting on the resignation of the Chair of the Scottish Police Authority Andrew Flanagan, Scottish Liberal Democrat justice spokesperson Liam McArthur MSP said:

"Andrew Flanagan has taken the right decision in the interests of the SPA. However, serious damage has already been done to the reputation of the organisation.

"For that, the SNP Government must accept its full share of the blame, given their botched centralisation of policing.

"While the next Chair must ensure there is now a genuine culture shift towards greater transparency and democracy, the Justice Secretary needs to guarantee this through legislation."
