Title: Dame Elish Angiolini, Chancellor of the University of the West of Scotland

Motion Text:

That the Parliament congratulates Dame Elish Angiolini on becoming the first woman to be made chancellor of the University of the West of Scotland; understands that this role will establish Dame Elish as an ambassador for the Paisley-based university for the next five years; believes that this honour is in recognition of the former Solicitor General and Lord Advocate’s work in reforming Scotland’s justice system, including her bid to make it more receptive to the victims of crime; wishes Dame Elish, who is also principal of St Hugh’s College, Oxford, every success in her new role, and believes that she will be a prodigious ambassador for the university.
