The Politicians and the Professionals Seminar Series

 

We are particularly pleased to be able to announce this new series of seminars in which senior politicians from each of the five parties represented at the Scottish Parliament will speak for 45 to 50 minutes – one at each seminar - about the ‘implications of constitutional change’. Each speaker will choose his or her particular slant for their talk and will take questions for a further 30 minutes. Jeremy Peat, Director of the David Hume Institute, will be in the chair for each seminar. All events commence at 6pm at the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
