SNP announce Westminster reshuffle
Very pleased to have been reappointed to the SNP Westminster Front Bench Team, and to the role of Women and Equalities Spokesperson in the reshuffle announced by SNP Westminster Group Leader Stephen Flynn today.
East Renfrewshire is a constituency which is so much the better for our diversity, and it will be a privilege to continue to speak up for women and our diverse communities as part of my job.
Stephen Flynn said: "The SNP's new frontbench team will pile pressure on the UK government to help families with the cost of living, whilst renewing the positive case for independence in Europe, and investment in Scotland’s enormous renewable energy potential, as the best route to securing strong and sustained economic growth.
"The Tories trashed the UK economy - and it's increasingly clear the Tory-lite Labour Party is offering no change from the disastrous policies that got the UK into this mess. Under Sir Keir Starmer, they back Brexit, austerity cuts, and creeping privatisation of the NHS, which will take the UK down the path to long-term decline and hammer the incomes of families in Scotland.
"The SNP is the party with a plan to deliver strong economic growth - and reduce the cost of living. Scotland is an energy rich country with huge resources. By rejoining the EU, and investing in the renewable energy gold rush, we can build a wealthier, greener and fairer future. "Over the coming months, my new team will continue to put the Westminster-made cost of living crisis at forefront of our work - and we will make the case that voting SNP is the only way to secure independence, boost the economy and deliver the real hope, and real change the public so badly deserve."
