Presiding Officer Visits Inverness

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Thursday November 9 2017

Holyrood’s Presiding Officer, the Rt Hon Ken Macintosh MSP, will visit Inverness on Friday 10 November to meet with a range of people and hear their thoughts about the future of the Parliament.

He will chair an event looking at how Scotland’s society might be changed by technology in 2030 and deliver a keynote speech on the future of Holyrood and how it might reform in the years ahead.

The visit to the capital of the Highlands will also provide an opportunity for the Presiding Officer to meet with pupils at Milton of Leys Primary School and to take part in a community walking football initiative with Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC.

Speaking ahead of the visit, Presiding Officer, Ken Macintosh MSP, said:

“From the word go the Scottish Parliament has tried to be much more than a building in Edinburgh, it is an institution which engages with and represents the views of people across the whole country. 

“I am looking forward to meeting and speaking with local residents in Inverness and the wider community and to be hearing for myself how the Scottish Parliament can best reflect our shared hopes and aspirations.”
