Delighted to welcome Roger White and Deborah Jones from local employers AG Barr to Parliament this morning for a meeting – over bacon rolls and Irn Bru Xtra – with MPs. Hannah Bardell MP set the scene and Roger set out some of the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead for the Cumbernauld-based company.
After that I was in the chamber to make the case for ‘making every vote count’ through electoral reform. Sadly the government seems wedded to First Past the Post. PMQs failed to dispel the impression that the government has no idea what’s happening on the UK leaving the EU.
Next, I’ll be joining colleagues on the Home Affairs Committee to question the new Home Secretary.
