On 18th October 2018, a panel event will take place from 6-8pm in the Speaker’s State Rooms to mark forty years since the death of former East Lothian MP, John Pitcairn Mackintosh.
John was an exceptional Member of Parliament in the UK who left a profound legacy. His ideas on devolution were transformative and considerably ahead of his time. He was also a strong advocate of the UK’s involvement in Europe, a constitutional reformer, and a fierce debater. This event will build on some of his ideas and examine how those values sit within our movement and society today, using the past to look forward positively.
