Bit too far away I'm afraid, but I wrote to my MP and I've bookmarked your site to keep tabs, thanks. :thumbright:

Thank you everyone,

Saturday went well - thanks to all who came.

Next step - Tuesday 10th...

Would be great to see you there - even if you can't get an appt with your MSP (or representative) please come along and show your support.

If you can't come - please e-mail/write to your MSP and/or your MP anyway to raise awareness of the issue...

If you can come - ask for Claire (Mullein) - you'll find me - hopefully among the crowds...

I've had a letter back from my MSP saying as it's a UK-wide issue he can't do anything.

Hi,

it is and it isn't...

regulation of professions is a reserved issue (ie Westminster)

regulation of new professions (ie traditional medicine practitioners) is a devolved issue (ie Holyrood)

however - a consensus currently operates regarding the ongoing process - we can still lobby our MSPs to ensure they represent our views on a devolved issue and carry them forward into the wider process.

hope that helps
