Scottish Parliament MPs and MSPs: the difference
An MSP is a Member of the Scottish Parliament.

But there are also 72 MPs (Members of Parliament) who represent Scotland in the House of Commons at Westminster.

They represent their constituencies on issues that the Scottish Parliament cannot make law on, like Defence, Foreign Affairs, National Security and Employment.
