We regret to report that our much valued member, Dr. John Womersley, passed away on 17th March following a short illness.
The Scottish Parliament will next week be invited to nominate Rosemary Agnew to Her Majesty for appointment as the new Scottish Public Services Ombudsman.
Ms Agnew is expected to succeed the current Ombudsman Jim Martin who stands down from the post on 30 April this year.
The date of next meeting of Accountability Scotland will be advised once Rosemary Agnew is in post as SPSO on 1st May 2017, and the deadline for submissions to the Commission on Parliamentary Reform has been extended to midnight on 27th March 2017.
Non-committee members are welcome.
