Under consideration PE1935: Create an Independent Committee to judge whether Scottish Ministers have broken the Ministerial Code

Calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to create a Committee outside the Parliament to judge whether Ministers have broken the Ministerial Code.

Previous action taken

I have contacted the Scottish Government and received no response.

Background information

There should be a truly independent committee made up of non-MSPs to judge whether Ministers have broken the Ministerial Code. As MSPs are affiliated with a party, I believe they could vote in favour of a Minister and non-MSPs would not present this challenge.
