Assembly Budget

The Scottish Government provided resources to deliver the Assembly. A budget of around £1.4 million was set, in line with similar national Citizens Assemblies, for example, Ireland. The main elements of the budget are accounted for by the gift of thanks to members and the travel and other expenses incurred through Assembly attendance, venue and accommodation hire as well as payments to contractors for Assembly design, facilitation and digital and PR services. The initial budget is set out in the report at Annex 5 (the Scottish Government will publish the full Assembly costs in due course).
