The campaign for Leith Museum is making good progress. The petition, signed by many Leith Open Space supporters, goes before the Scottish Parliament Public Petitions Committee at 2 pm on Tuesday November 6. If you are free, this is always an interesting meeting to attend as a member of the public – and perhaps you can persuade your MSP to support the cause too.
According to campaigners, the Scottish Parliament is inviting local MSPs who support the petition to speak at the meeting. “This is a good opportunity to publicise the case for a Leith museum,” says Mark Lazarowicz, MP for Edinburgh North and Leith and a keen campaign supporter, “So it would be excellent if there was a good turn-out of Lothian MSPs to support the petition at this meeting.”
Mark is urging anyone who lives in Lothian to ask their MSP to support the museum. “A Leith museum would not just be for Leith, but for Scotland as well!” You can find out details of your local MSPs and how to contact them on the Scottish Parliament website
