First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said:
“There is no doubt that the re-establishment of Scotland’s
parliament has profoundly changed Scotland’s political culture for the better,
with our nation’s lawmakers much more accessible to those they represent.
It has also enabled us to have conversations we wouldn’t have had and
to debate our own future – with the 2014 independence referendum –
generating an increase in democratic engagement.”
