Launch of the Public Petitions Committee's blog and video

On Tuesday 16 June the Public Petitions Committee of the Scottish Parliament launched this new blog page. Gulp! It also launched its new video about the public petitions process.

Petitioning the Scottish Parliament: Making your voice heard.

Watch the Public Petitions Committee Film

Why not gives us your thoughts on our blog page. What info would you like to see? What about the layout, the language we use? Did you find the blog OK and did you find it useful?

We are also publishing the report of our year long inquiry into the public petitions process. A very good read if we say so! You can get a copy below

We are very proud of the public petitions process here in the Parliament. But let us know what you think.


  1. Good video. Didnt know it was that easy to put a petition in.

  2. Thanks Spitfire, glad you enjoyed! Let us know if you want any more info


  3. wanted to watch the video but couldn't get it to play?
    Also, can I start a petition about MSPs expenses?

  4. Sorry you couldn't get the video to play. We'll check this out with our tecky folk here and come back to you.

    On your second point, yes I guess you could petition the SP about the MSPs expenses scheme. Let us know if you want more info on how to do this.

  5. We have asked out IT people to look into this and they could not replicate the problem you experienced with the video. As long as you have the latest version of Windows media player and a good internet connection you should be able to watch all videos on the blog. This being said, we will conduct further tests to try to find out what could have caused this.
