Conveners Group

The Conveners Group is chaired by the Presiding Officer or a Deputy Presiding Officer and is a forum where Committee Conveners meet to take a strategic view on the operation of committees and to facilitate liaison between the Committees, the Parliamentary Bureau and the Scottish Parliament Corporate Body.

The Group handles a range of matters, for example:

  • promotion of practices to improve the performance of committees, in particular their scrutiny function
  • making recommendations to the Bureau on Committee business to be scheduled in the Chamber
  • approval of meetings of Committees outside Edinburgh
  • approval of travel by Committees or Committee members outside the UK
