SSP protest ban will cost party thousands
- SSP ban will cost party thousands
A demonstration by the Scottish Socialist Party could cost it £25,000,
according to its national treasurer.
The Scottish Parliament banned four of its MSPs from the building for a
month after they staged an in-house protest.
The politicians will also lose their salaries and allowances during
their suspensions - a total of £51,708.
As the SSP MSPs donate half of their salaries to party coffers each
month this means its overall finances will also be hit by the exclusion.
