    New website - tell us what you think!

    We’re pleased to announce the first version of the new Scottish Parliament ‘beta’ website is now live. ('Beta' means it’s ready for the public to use and give feedback on, but it's still very much a work in progress.)

    Please take a look and let us know what you think. We need your help to create best possible parliamentary website.
