Register of Members' Interests for MSPs in the Scottish Parliament.

The request was successful.

Dear Scottish Parliament,

This request was made to the Scottish Government initially but they advise it is appropriate to you>

https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/r...

An examination of the interests declared by a number of MSPs indicates that none of these includes membership of Freemasonry, or an interest in Freemasonry.

The FOI request is as follows:

1) Is there any official requirement to declare membership of Freemasonry, or an interest in Freemasonry?

2) Has this been discussed in The Scottish Parliament, or elsewhere, and if so, what was the outcome?

3) Given the influence of Scottish Rite Freemasonry has the Scottish Parliament issued any policy documents regarding MSPs who are members of Freemasonry? It seems it is necessary to declare an interest in this for transparency and the public interest.

In a recent approach to Oliver Mundell MSP it was established that Freemasonry played a significant part in his failure to act for a constituent. Not only that but he subjected the constituent to rudeness, elder abuse and Disability Hate Crime. This was due to Masonic influences that had corrupted him.

Yours faithfully,

Susan Murray
