David Mundell is interim Scottish Tory Chairman

It was announced today that Peter Duncan had stood down as chairman of the Scottish Conservative Party to be replaced, on an interim basis, by David Mundell, the Shadow Scottish Secretary and the party's only Scottish MP.

Although Duncan - since May a councillor in Dumfries and Galloway - had been expected to stand down for some time now, it seems to me a little odd for him to be doing so before a permanent replacement has been identified.

Names being mentioned in Abbey House include the former MSPs Murray Tosh and Lord James Douglas-Hamilton, the latter of whom is now active in the House of Lords.
