As we draw to the end of another busy week, here is my Week in 5.
The Cost of Living (Tenants Protection) Bill was passed this week, and I was very happy to be able to contribute to Stage 1 of the debate as it proceeded through Parliament.
It was also great to meet with two exceptional charities this week, both of which are thoroughly deserving of support - Women and Girls in Sport and Finding Your Feet. I have known Corinne at Finding Your Feet for many years, and the work she has put in to fundraising and helping those with amputations in incredible.
I also met with the David Hume Institute this week regarding balancing the risks on issues such as pensions, insurance and housing. This has given me a broader understanding of some of the issues affecting my constituents in Falkirk East, and I will be hosting a further event in the Scottish Parliament with them next month.
The Scottish Parliament is in recess for the next fortnight, and as such the next Week in 5 will be posted on 28 October.
