Scottish Petition

Mr D W R Whittet has just set up a short term petition calling for the Scottish Parliament to set up an Appeal Tribunal to review final decisions by the Public Services Ombudsman where any complainer so requests.

This petition can be viewed here.

Unfortunately you can't sign the petition on line you need to send an email in support of Mr Wittet's petition. However, Mr Franck David of the Scottish Parliament public petition department has confirmed that if any member of the public wishes to support this petition, then all they have to do is send him an email confirming that they wish to sign and support petition PE1076.

Mr Franck David advised that the petition PE1076 will probably go to committee on the 4th December 2007 so please don't delay sending your email.

If the Scottish Parliament implemented this petition then it would be a significant step forward in making the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman more accountable and I think it would send a clear message to the Scottish Parliament how dissatisfied the public are with the service provided by the current Ombudsman.

The email I have just sent is shown below.

Email Subject: Petition PE1076

Dear Mr Franck David,

I wish to sign and support Mr Whittet's petition PE1076. Please add my name to the list.

Thank You.

Trevor Nunn
