MSPs: use of parliamentary resources
This section includes policies and guidance on the use of resources provided by the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body for MSPs' parliamentary duties.
Parliamentary resources include items such as office equipment and furniture, IT and mail systems, meeting rooms and expenses paid to support Members in their parliamentary duties. It also includes financial assistance to non-Scottish Government parties. They are provided by the SPCB to support MSPs with their parliamentary duties and must not be used to any significant extent for any other purpose including any party political purpose.
The SPCB appreciates there can sometimes be a fine line between something that is parliamentary and party political and Members have to use their judgement accordingly. Where there is any doubt, MSPs are encouraged to seek advice from the contact points provided in the various policies.
