You must be interested enough yourself in the seating arrangements at Holyrood, even if you only watch now and then due perhaps to work commitments, and a follower of the Scottish debates particularly during First Minister’s questions, responses, debates etc., if not I suggest you tune in more.


I honestly can't say i've noticed the chamber empty the last time i saw a FM's questions, i'll try to catch it on Thursday.

If you watch regularly then can you tell us which parties MSP's are missing most as you must be familiar with the seating layout?

  Carmella, it could be a good thing. To come to a political decision a committee should consist of 3 people and 2 of them should not come to the meeting.😁

Agree with you about PMQs but most of the time the place is far from full and in many cases almost empty.


Aye, but in Holyrood it is all the time, not on the odd occasion. I think it is because there are more MPs down there. MSPs and otherwise.

When Parliament is sitting, I watch it every day, and have done for years particularly during PMQs and it is always full.

  Jagz, I don’t think that is the right reason, while I do think some must be away on business, not sure as to the other reasons.

Every time I watch Scottish Parliament, I wonder why it us so empty.

Just wondering why, is it a lack of MSPs - I have no idea, all we see are an awful lot of empty seats.

Watching the Scottish news this evening, something occurred to me for the umpteeth time!

Why is it that the Chamber is always so devoid of people during debates from the Scottish Parliament?

Is it because there are not enough MSPs to put their ‘bums on seats’ or, is it because they are all on their holidays, or down in Westminster?

Answers on a postcard to reach me by December 12th, thanks!

C’mon Jagz you must ken!



Hadn't seen the news Carmella but i'd imagine some MSP's were away on business or were working elsewhere in the building, there is a full compliment of MSP's as far as i'm aware, same can be said of the HoC in Westminster, the only time it's really full is when they're awarding themselves a pay rise. wink.gif
