General question time - 6 December 2012

MSPs questioned Rural Affairs Secretary Richard Lochhead, Infrastructure Secretary Nicola Sturgeon, Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill and Public Health Minister Michael Matheson during general question time on 6 December 2012.

Issues that arose included how many wards were closed and patients were affected by norovirus outbreaks in hospitals in November 2012, how the number of Lothian and Borders Police officers compared with the number in quarter one of 2007 and what action was being taken to monitor the fairness and transparency of pharmacy applications and appeals.
