The Blether held at the Scottish Parliament on Saturday 8 December was an outstanding success. Hosted by Jean Urquhart MSP, chaired by Bob Ingram SDA, the primary subject under discussion was a Constitution for Scotland and how could people become involved with its drafting.
A range of options and means of implementation were discussed. This led to Jean and Bob undertaking to organise a follow on meeting in January, to which will be invited representatives from a range of interested organisations. Amongst the attendees were school pupils from Aberdeenshire and from Napier University and it is the intent to invite a wider representation of our younger generations.
Jean Urquhart has offered to investigate whether it will be possible to hold a debate in the main debating chamber of the Parliament on the 6 April 2013.
The SDA draft Constitution is available to members on the SDA website.
