This week I was able to take part in both General Questions and an important Scottish Parliament debate. The debate on Scotland’s democratic right to choose was excellent and highlighted the need for Scotland to become independent following the disastrous Brexit fallout. At General Questions, I asked the Minister for Public Health, Women’s Health and Sport, Maree Todd MSP, about bladder cancer deaths in Scotland, and what data drives research into providing better care for those diagnosed with bladder cancer.
As Scotland looks towards what further action needs to be taken to achieve our Net Zero ambitions, I was pleased to be able to meet with British Hydropower to find out more about the impact hydropower can have in generating cleaner energy sources.
In my role as a member of the Economy and Fair Work committee, I also met with FSCS to find out more about their work and how they can support consumers of financial services in Scotland.
This week has been a very varied first week back in The Scottish Parliament, and I look forward to another busy week next week!
