Register for declaring employment of Member's close relatives published online


A new register detailing the employment by MSPs of close family members has been published today on the Scottish Parliament’s website.

The move follows an independent review and a parliamentary debate earlier this year at Holyrood.

The register (pdf 58kb) is a requirement of a new scheme introduced at the Parliament on 1 October 2008 for reimbursing Members for costs they incur in carrying out their parliamentary duties.

For the purposes of the scheme and the new register, a close family member is defined as:

  • a spouse, civil partner or cohabiting partner of the Member or
  • a parent, child, grandparent, grandchild, sibling, uncle, aunt, nephew or niece of the Member or of the spouse, civil partner or cohabiting partner of the Member.
