Every month I send out my parliamentary newsletter to hundreds of subscribers to my mailing list. This is meant as a round up of some of my activities over the previous month and to highlight issues and campaigns that might be of interest to constituents in Glasgow South West. You can view the October edition of my newsletter, and subscribe to future editions, by clicking here. Below are some of the highlights from my August newsletter.
Protecting Scotland’s Interests
Since the EU Referendum result, it’s become clearer and clearer that the UK Government haven’t a clue how they want to negotiate with the European Union. The soundbite is “Brexit Means Brexit”, but no-one in Downing Street seems to know what means what. Scotland’s First Minister has clearly set out that our future lies as part of the EU and Single Market, and the UK’s lack of a credible plan is putting this in jeopardy. It seems increasingly likely that only a referendum on independence can secure our place in the European family of nations and protect workers’ rights.
My constituency office is open at 1612 – 1614 Paisley Road West, G52 3QN. You can drop in any time between 9am and 5pm Mon – Fri, with late opening until 6pm on a Thursday. First Bus services 9/9A and 34 and McGills 38 pass right by the office, while First Bus 10 stops a short walk away. Mosspark and Cardonald rail stations are nearby. There is also ample parking around the back of the office.
My staff team are here to help you with whatever issues you have. I can’t promise we’ll get results every time – but we’ll try our best every time.
