Invitees to these events were not preselected.

An open invitation was sent to various public, private and voluntary bodies in those areas. These organisations were asked to nominate representatives and recommend other local bodies which the Executive could extend an invite to. In this way a range of local interests, including political parties, were represented at each event.

Asking for nominations also allowed the Executive to issue a written invitation and a copy of The Scottish Budget to each nominee prior to the event.
