Cross Party Group on Credit Unions

The Scottish Parliament’s Cross-Party Group (CPG) on Credit Unions gives Scotland’s thriving credit union sector a regular foholyroodrum at Holyrood.

The Group, which was launched in 2009, was successfully reformed after the 2016 Scottish Parliament election, under new Convenor Ruth Maguire MSP. The group meets every few months to discuss issues important within the sector and hear from interesting speakers. Other members of the group include Claudia Beamish MSP (Deputy Convenor), Alison Harris MSP, Andy Wightman MSP, Angus MacDonald MSP, Ben MacPherson MSP, James Kelly MSP, Johann Lamont MSP and Pauline McNeill MSP.

The first meeting of 2017 took place in February and we were delighted to welcome Cabinet Secretary Angela Constance MSP to address the meeting - you can read a full round up here. The group also met in June to hear from representatives of the American credit union sector - you can read about this here.

You can read minutes of previous meetings on the Scottish Parliament website.

The next meeting will be exploring the Scottish Government's recent commitments on credit unions on the Programme for Government, and takes places in the Scottish Parliament on 3 October 2017. Please contact karen.hurst@abcul.org if you would like to attend. Please note that places at the event are limited and so it is important to book.
