For the Greens, MSP Alison Johnstone asks the first minister about homeless people, saying that before the pandemic Scotland had the highest number of deaths amongst the homeless in the UK.
She says that as we recover from the pandemic, and restrictions continue, will the first minister extend the eviction ban and commit to making the winter evictions ban a permanent fixture.
The first minister says the eviction ban has already been extended and says discussions have been held about making the ban permanent.
She says it needs to be looked at more closely and says she is open-minded to those discussions.
Ms Johnstone also asks if the first minister will show more ambition to support poorer communities by increasing household income, providing more free school meals and reducing public transport costs.
Ms Sturgeon replies by saying that work on these issues is already ongoing but that there is more work to be done.
