Election letters 2019 / Nationalisation question has already been answered

The Conservative MSP for the Highlands and Islands, Jamie Halcro Johnston, asks the question of the SNP candidate Tom Wills, where he stands on ferry nationalisation? (SN letters, 16 August 2019).

If Mr Johnston had any local knowledge on the subject, he’d know the Scottish Government had already asked us and the majority wanted ferries kept in private hands.

Since Mr Johnston is not even standing in the by election, would it not be normal practice for the Tory candidate, Brydon Goodlad, to ask his own questions of other candidates?

Even ones already answered by the electorate!
