Cost-benefit analysis of external Parliament meetings

Cost-benefit analysis of external Parliament meetings

Carry out a cost-benefit analysis of the Parliament itself or committees meeting outside of Holyrood and compare this to (a) more support and targeted invitations for people to come to Holyrood and (b) reinstating Parliament days (MSPs going out into communities for a day of activity).

Points

I think it is more important to have more meetings outside of Holyrood as the central belt of Scotland could be thought of as being similar to Westminster i.e. completely alien to a large section of the country. I don’t necessarily think it should come down to a cost benefit analysis to decide this though, as including and informing all your voters is a powerful thing in democracy.

How do you 'cost benefit analyse' participation, engagement, sense of agency etc?
