Following the Scottish Parliament elections yesterday, Cardinal Keith O Brien has welcomed all those candidates who were successfully elected.  

Returning from a "Make Aid Work" Conference in Rome where he was part of a delegation of Catholic Aid Agencies and G8 Finance Ministers, the Cardinal said; I extend the warmest welcome and congratulations to all those who have been elected to the Scottish Parliament and wish them well in their work for the people of Scotland over the next four years.  

I look forward to working with the First Minister and members of Parliament in pursuit of the common good and in recognition of our country s Christian identity and heritage.  

ENDS  


Note to Editors:  

Between Monday 30 April and Friday 4 May, Cardinal O'Brien travelled to London, where his delegation met Prime Minister Tony Blair, Berlin where he met Peer Steinbrück, Germany's Minister of Finance and Rome where he had meetings with Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi and Pope Bendict XVI.  

The Cardinal obtained a postal vote which he used the week before he travelled.
