Responding to the appointment of Susan Deacon as the new chair of the Scottish Police Authority (SPA), Scottish Liberal Democrat justice spokesperson Liam McArthur MSP said:

"I congratulate Susan Deacon on her appointment. She is very experienced and has a wide range of skills, which will be needed as she inherits an organisation under immense pressure. The SPA has faced a deluge of bad news over the past twelve months, from accusations of a culture of secrecy to a break down of managerial relationships.

"It is essential that the new Chair works with the incoming Chief Executive to get to grips with these challenges so that public confidence can be restored going forward."
