Should the *Scottish Parliament* have a quota for BAME/female MSPs? - No.
Should political parties be very mindful to put forward candidates from a wide variety of backgrounds including BAME/Female invidividuals in winning seats? - Yes very much so.
Should political parties have quotas? - On a long term basis no, on a short term basis I would be in favour of introducing mechanisms that support improved representation. I believe we need a quick surge to really tackle systemic issues our society face, and let minority/female groups use the opportunity to continue the work of representation from there onwards.
