The site is going through a bit of a revamp.
Please accept our apologies as we shuffle things about.
Thank you for electing me to be your representative in Westminster as the MP for the Central Ayrshire constituency. I can promise you that I will, as a member of a strong SNP contingent, work tirelessly on behalf of all constituents in Central Ayrshire.
Thank you also for the incredible support you have shown, not just to me but, to all the SNP candidates who stood for election to Westminster. My colleagues and I will work tirelessly for a better devolution settlement so we can protect our NHS and other public services, and fight inequality and poverty in Scotland.
