Lorna Slater, Lothian, Scottish Green Party
Date lodged: 20 August 2021
To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on talks with the Scottish Green Party on a potential co-operation agreement.
Current status: Initiated by the Scottish Government. Answered by Nicola Sturgeon on 20 August 2021
As I advised Parliament on 26 May, the Scottish Government and the Scottish Green Party committed to exploring opportunities for cooperation and joint working
I am pleased to advise Parliament that the Scottish Government has today published drafts of a joint cooperation agreement and a shared policy programme, Working together to build a greener, fairer, independent Scotland .
Together, these set out our plans for close cooperation and collaboration that will allow us to work together to deliver the bold policies and programmes we need for the challenges we face. We are also determined that this new approach will change the dynamic of our politics for the better and in line with the founding principles of our Parliament.
