Cross Party Group On Credit Unions

The Scottish Parliament’s Cross-Party Group on credit unions


The Group was founded in 2009 and, following its successful re-establishment after the 2015 election, is convened by Ruth Maguire MSP. The CPG meets every few months, bringing together MSPs from across the parties, credit unions and stakeholders to discuss opportunities, issues of concern and the impact of devolved policy decisions on credit unions in Scotland.

Previous CPG meetings have discussed topics such as helping Scots through the recession, fair and appropriate debt solutions, publicising credit unions and promoting financial capability.
