Gender balance

Has Harriet Harman ("Claim women an afterthought in SNP", The Herald, January 18) taken no account of Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, Minister for Commonwealth Games and Sport Shona Robison, Minister for Children and Young People Angela Constance, Minister for Community Safety Roseanna Cunningham and Cabinet Secretary for Culture and External Affairs Fiona Hyslop?

A quarter of the Holyrood Cabinet plus about a further 23 female MSPs does not seem to be a case of overlooking women.

Nigel Dewar Gibb,

15 Kirklee Road, Glasgow.
