I'm sorry VB - did not read it that your comments were focused solely on SG.
Even so - my points apply to ALL our govt's - national and devolved then.
I make no proposal to redeploy resource internally within govt bodies.
I argue it is essential that additional resource is found, employed and/or commissioned for these important tasks.
We are in unique and exceptional circumstances of the deepest national emergency possibly in our nations' histories therefore the imperative must be that we step outside what might be perceived as "normal governmental activity" and address these exceptional needs - and urgently.
