About the Scottish Parliament

Conveners Group

Each committee in the Parliament has a convener. The Conveners Group is made up of all the conveners. It is chaired by the Presiding Officer or a Deputy Presiding Officer.

The Conveners Group meets regularly to:

  • discuss issues affecting committees
  • communicate between the committees and other parts of the Parliament, like the Parliamentary Bureau and SPCB
  • look at how committees are working 
  • make recommendations to the Parliamentary Bureau about committee business in the Chamber
  • approve committee meetings taking place outside of Edinburgh
  • approve committee travel outside the UK

The rules about how the Conveners Group works are in Chapter 6A of the Standing Orders.

Next meeting

The Conveners Group will meet on Wednesday 25 January.

If you want to get in touch, you can contact Irene Fleming, the Clerk for the group.
