Michelle Thomson, SNP MSP for Falkirk East, has put forward a motion to the Scottish Parliament to recognise the bravery of Bo’ness local, 10-year-old Aaron Hunter.
Aaron was named Daily Record Pride of Scotland’s Child of Courage for 2021 for the challenges he has faced in living with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, and being the first child in the world to undergo a “hear-in-a-box” procedure. The awards ceremony is to be televised on STV at 8pm on Tuesday 27 July.
HOLYROOD TOLD: “WE MUST BE UP TO THE CHALLENGE OF STANDING BY THE RIGHTS OF THE PEOPLE OF SCOTLAND TO SAFEGUARD OUR OWN FUTURE.”
Falkirk East constituency’s new SNP MSP, Michelle Thomson, delivered her first speech in the Scottish Parliament on Thursday 27 May in a debate on the Covid-19 pandemic.
Ms Thomson, who held the Falkirk East seat for the SNP at the Scottish Parliament election earlier this month, used her first contribution to highlight Scotland’s opportunities to change society for the better because of what we have learned throughout the pandemic.
