Responding to the reports that Conservative MEP Ian Duncan is set to be made a member of the House of Lords enabling him to be assigned to the Scotland Office, Scottish Liberal Democrat MSP Alex Cole-Hamilton said:

"Theresa May obviously doesn't have a lot of faith in the talents of her newly elected Scottish MPs if she is so keen to pass them over.

"More importantly though this highlights the flawed and out-dated processes that still sit at the heart of our democracy.

"Scottish Liberal Democrats believe that the undemocratic and unrepresentative House of Lords should be abolished."
