Trish Godman MSP Background

The Conveners Group (CG) was constituted in 1999 by the Presiding Officer to provide an informal forum where Committee Conveners could meet to discuss matters of mutual interest and to facilitate liaison between the Committees, the Parliamentary Bureau and the Scottish Parliament Corporate Body. The Group is chaired by one of the Deputy Presiding Officers.

On 19 December 2002, the Group was formally constituted and given a remit and powers under Standing Orders.



Parliamentary elections took place on Thursday May 5. Committees for Session 4 of the Scottish Parliament will be established shortly. Until this happens, there is no Conveners Group
