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).


I'm torn with this one. The costs of going external will always outweigh staying within Holyrood however you can't put a price on the difference it might make to someone who has engaged with the Parliament and managed to enact a positive change. even if it was one person within a community or one person in every community. I believe it is very important for the Parliament to be out and about but the funds and resource need to be there to support that.
