Cross Party Groups
Accident Prevention and Safety Awareness (Convener)
The purpose of the CPG is “to promote all aspects of safety through raising awareness and accident prevention” and as such considers safety issues in the home, on the road, in and around water and in the workplace and any other place where accidents occur. The format of the meetings is to hear short presentations on relevant topics followed by group discussion, questions, comments and suggested recommendations. It is my privilege to be the convenor of the group which currently has around 160 members. To find out more information on the CPG regarding future meetings dates and the minutes of previous meetings are available at the Scottish Parliament website.
Science and Technology (Convener)
The purpose of the group is to promote opportunities for MSPs and the scientific community in Scotland to interact on issues of importance to science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine.
