Tribute to Margo MacDonald
Bruce Beveridge, President of the Law Society of Scotland, has today (4 April) paid tribute to Margo MacDonald.
He said: "Margo MacDonald has been a formidable figure in Scottish politics for over 40 years. She was hugely influential and committed to the causes she passionately believed in such as Scottish independence and assisted suicide legislation and she will sadly now not see the outcome of these two debates.
"She was a vibrant and important figure in Scottish public life and a staunch supporter of the Scottish legal profession, shown by being a judge for many years for the Scottish Legal Awards. She will be very sadly missed and her loss will be keenly felt across the political spectrum.
"We extend our thoughts and sympathies to her family, friends and political colleagues."
