Parliamentary questions

Bringing matters to the attention of government

MSPs often try to get information by asking a Parliamentary Question (PQ). Ministers have to reply to either written or oral questions. To date 97 PQs about epilepsy have been asked in the parliament. You can read the most recent ones here:

We are keen to encourage politicians to do all they can to meet the needs of people with epilepsy, so we use the parliamentary system of asking PQs to bring matters to the attention of the Scottish Government.

This is an important part of the work that Epilepsy Scotland does behind the scenes to make a difference to people affected by epilepsy. If you have a burning issue that you feel needs to be heard, email us at and we will see if a PQ would be the best way to make your voice heard.
