This Monday (23rd Nov), Inverclyde will be getting a visit from Cabinet Members of The Scottish Parliament. I am excited to welcome the Cabinet and showcase what Inverclyde has to offer.
About 400 local people have registered to pack out the hall for the public discussion, it is brilliant that so many people have registered to attend the meeting and get involved with the political process.
It will be a great opportunity to ask questions of the Scottish Government and engage …with what is going on in the Scottish Parliament.
Our First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, has said:
“Traveling Cabinets make this the most accessible government ever, and we have attracted significant interest from the communities that have been visited.
“In terms of numbers attending the public discussion, Inverclyde has exceeded all the other Cabinets that have been held across Scotland.
“This is the chance for local people to give us their views on the matters that are important to them, be that at a local tor national issue. They can also have a face-to-face chat with a Minister following the public discussion.
“These traveling Cabinets are important in that they will help inform the policy decisions my government makes.”
