Review of allowances at the Scottish Parliament
The SPCB undertake a review of the Reimbursement of Members’ Expenses Schemes each parliamentary session to ensure that the Scheme remains fit for purpose in supporting Members in undertaking their parliamentary duties. The latest reviews on the wider Scheme and the Staff Cost Provision were completed in 2020 with a new Scheme agreed by Parliament on 2 March 2021.
The reviews were undertaken by parliamentary officials and the details of the process undertaken and the recommendations made can be found in the reports for each review. The reports can be found on the Parliament’s website at:
The new Scheme comes into force on 6 May 2021 and can be found here: https://www.parliament.scot/msps/members-expenses/members-expenses-scheme
