P6/7 visited the Scottish Parliament on 19th January 2010. We had to go through security and we looked for saltire crosses all around the building.
We learned that there are 129 MSPs who work there. They work to make laws about all kinds of things – schools, health, environment, farming and culture.
They have meetings with experts and ask the people what they think then they go to the debating chamber to have a debate and then vote on the law.
The presiding officer, who is like a teacher for the MSPs, he keeps order in the debating chamber and makes sure everyone gets a turn to speak, is called Alex Fergusson (but it’s not the same Alex Fergusson as Man Utd).
Everyone in the debating chamber has the same chair to show that all the MSPs are equal.
If the law is not passed, the presiding officer says, ‘The motion is fallen’.
We had a debate in class last term about fair trade goods.
