Annabel Goldie to step down

The former Leader of the Scottish Conservatives, Rt Hon. Annabel MacNicoll Goldie, Baroness Goldie DL, MSP for West of Scotland since the devolved parliament’s creation, will not stand as a candidate in next year’s Holyrood election, intending to “focus on her duties in the House of Lords” instead.
