Nuisance Phone Calls

This month, I submitted my first legislation to the House of Commons. This 10-Minute Rule bill gave me ten minutes to set out my case for stronger legislation on Nuisance Phone Calls, before the bill moves to second reading. Each bill is read 3 times in the Commons and 3 times in the Lords.

Getting out and about

One of my favourite jobs as MP is to get out into Stirling Constituency, to meet people, businesses, organisations, and institutions. By hearing from these groups, I can best serve Stirling as the MP, and bring Stirling's case to Westminster. 

Stirling City Region Deal

Since my election, I have been lobbying in Westminster to ensure that the funds are made available for the Stirling City Region Deal.

Improving broadband

Many people in rural Stirlingshire have trouble with slow, ineffective broadband. This makes it difficult to work and live in rural areas, which in turn puts a stopper on growth in these areas.

Bank branch closures

Since RBS and the Bank of Scotland announced that they would be closing branches in Bannockburn, Dunblane, and Bridge of Allan, I have been active in trying to get the decision overturned.

Street Surgeries

Every Saturday, I hold a street surgery. In these surgeries, my team - which includes local Councillors and MSPs- will go door to door in an area to hear concerns from local people.
