Westminster UK Parliament

Since I was elected to represent you at Westminster in 2015, I have spent a great deal of time in parliament debating issues to improve the lives of my constituents. In my role as SNP Health Spokesperson, I take a keen interest in Health and Wellbeing, and Social Justice, and attend all-party parliamentary groups. I regularly speak up for Ayrshire on many issues, including Prestwick Airport and Spaceport, and the Ayrshire Growth Deal.
