Reform Scotland Election Discussion

Event Date:

Reform Scotland was delighted to host an online general election discussion featuring some of Scotland’s leading politicians.
The result matters not just for Westminster, but for what it will tell us about Holyrood 2026. The key themes of the economy, the cost-of-living crisis and repair of the NHS and schools will continue to be central to Scotland’s debate in the next few years. 
Our panel comprised of:
Kate Forbes, SNP, Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for the Economy
Daniel Johnson, Labour, Shadow Cabinet Secretary for the Economy
Lord Offord, Conservatives, former Scotland Office minister and Under-Secretary of State for Exports
Willie Rennie, Liberal Democrats, Spokesperson for Education, the Economy and Communities
The debate was chaired by Chris Deerin, Director of Reform Scotland and took place on 1 July 2024 over Zoom. Catch up here:
