A TORY MSP has been caught fobbing off one of his constituents after accidentally sending them an email meant for his staff.

Adam Tomkins made the blunder in response to an email about concerns over coronavirus restrictions at weddings.

Constituent Duncan Forrest, a manager in the hospitality sector who is also in the process of planning his wedding, warned limits on the number of guests are having a “devastating effect” on the industry.

“I am writing to you to urge you to highlight the issue surrounding wedding guest numbers in Scotland to the Scottish Parliament, and propose that the number of wedding guests permitted should be limited according to venue capacity and ventilation,” the email reads.

It was also sent to Glasgow MSPs Johann Lamont, Patrick Harvie, James Kelly, Pauline McNeill, Annie Wells and Anas Sarwar.

The constituent makes proposals to “aid the mental wellbeing” of hospitality sector workers and people planning their weddings.

However, in a response presumably intended for a member of his team, Tomkins replies: “You can tweak my usual Covid response for this one, I think.”

The Glasgow MSP, who put the response down to "an administrative error”, was criticised on Facebook after the exchange was shared on the site.

“Just shows you. They don’t care,” one comment read.

Tomkins commented: “I’ve been in touch with the constituent and have apologised for the administrative error.”

An SNP spokesman added: “Having announced he is not seeking re-election to Holyrood, it appears Adam Tomkins’ full focus may no longer be on the day job and the needs of his constituents.”
