Sunshine Act for Scotland petition Dr Peter J Gordon, Public Petitions Committee 11 Nov 14 Scottish Parliament (outcome? ask Scottish Government)

[update: I attended the Public Petitions Committee meeting on 11 November 2014, from 10am, and at around 12 noon the Sunshine Act for Scotland petition was considered. Action?  Two minutes mention of contacting Scottish Government to ask about the NHS Circular HDL (2003) 62 (Registers of Interest) progress.  My thoughts?  Swingball.  Pass the buck.]

The Sunshine Act for Scotland petition submitted by Dr Peter J Gordon was considered by the Public Petitions Committee at its meeting on Tuesday 11 November 2014, in the Robert Burns Room (Committee Room 1) in the Scottish Parliament. 

"Calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to introduce a Sunshine Act for Scotland, creating a searchable record of all payments (including payments in kind) to NHS Scotland healthcare workers from Industry and Commerce."

A substantially verbatim transcript of proceedings will be produced following the meeting and will be published on the Parliament’s website approximately one week after the meeting here.

Following the meeting the petition webpage will be updated and the outcome of the Committee’s consideration can be found here.
