MSPs: use of parliamentary resources
Parliamentary resources are provided by the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body to support MSPs' in undertaking their parliamentary duties and include items such as office equipment and furniture, IT and mail systems, meeting rooms and the Reimbursement of Members’ Expenses Scheme. It also includes financial assistance to non-Scottish Government parties. These resources 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 and guidance.
