This week I was delighted to visit 3rd  Bo’ness Scouts to learn more about how they became the first Scout Group in the UK to reach Net Zero. The group have been nominated for several awards and I look forward to seeing their work flourish in future.

As convener of the CPG on music, I was pleased  to ask a question of the Cabinet Secretary for Constitution, External Affairs and Culture concerning the impact of Brexit on young musicians. You can watch this exchange on my FB page here:

I was also pleased to ask the Cabinet Secretary for Net Zero and Energy, a question regarding the potential future plans for Hydrogen production at Grangemouth and how this may fit in with the Government’s plan for a Just Transition for the Grangemouth area.

In addition to committee work earlier in the week, I was also pleased to speak in the stage 1 debate on the Aggregates Tax and Devolved Taxes Administration (Scotland) Bill, which I have followed with great interest through scrutiny at the Finance and Public Administration Committee

With this being Mental Health Awareness week, I enjoyed visiting the Place2Be Exhibition in parliament to learn more about the work they do in supporting children struggling with poor mental health. You can find out more on the following link :
