This is purely pandering to the Green Luddites. There is no credible risk of spillage & we are depriving the country of the £6 million annual fees for no work. Is this the way to get the economy moving as the SNP (& indeed Labour repeatedly) promised? When something comes up, as it surely will, where we need to spend £6 million will the Greens be on their feet apologising that it cannot be done.
£3 million each annually as merely the first instalment payment for 2 Green MSPs seems a very high price.
