Representing the Parliament at home and abroad

The Presiding Officer and their Deputies are responsible for representing the Scottish Parliament at home and abroad. This covers a wide range of duties and takes up a significant part of their time. The representative role can range from attending Royal functions, receiving delegations from across the world, leading outward Scottish Parliament delegations, and delivering speeches at events within the parliament and across Scotland, as well as at international conferences.
