Cross Party problem

There’s been no active cross-party group on the Scots language at the Scottish Parliament since session four, which ended in 2016. Re-establishing that is seen as vital to efforts to get better protections and investment in Scots. South of Scotland MSP Emma Harper invited every single sitting MSP to a meeting aimed at doing just that – but it ended in a single-party summit when no members of any other party turned up. That’s despite a 60-strong crowd of teachers, writers and other experts logging in for the meeting.
