HAVING read recent reports and letters in The Herald on the subject of day centres and their funding for the most disadvantaged sections of our people, I was minded to revisit an incident which took place some time ago.

Nicola Sturgeon found a surplus in the health budget for 2011-12 of £12.6m. It then appeared under the heading "Transfer to Sport :Commonwealth Games 2014".

As a father of a handicapped son, the sense of priorities that have been exhibited by Ms Sturgeon and too many others in government does not come as a surprise.
