Nine responses were received, 2 from candidates who were later unsuccessful in the elections. On the question "Do you have a need for nursery provision?", the remaining seven responded as follows:

Yes – 3 : of these, one wanted crèche facilities for a baby, either in Edinburgh close to the Parliament, or in Glasgow; one preferred/needed support for childcare/nursery provision close to home in Glasgow (she could not commute with children to Edinburgh); and one preferred to keep her child in the existing nursery although might consider placing her in a nursery closer to the Parliament building at a later date.

Possibly – 1: emergency out-of-school care on site

No – 3

A further questionnaire was returned late in May, responding in the positive but wishing to discuss further.
