Campaigns

As well as responding to the immediate needs of my constituents, I want to make a difference to Provan and to Scotland. Where issues arising from casework start to recur and produce a pattern - eg regarding property factoring or the UK Government’s Green Deal – something needs done about the system or process. In addition, there are things I want to promote such as ending rough sleeping and getting reusable nappies more widely used by parents in Scotland. The solutions might not be quick and easy to implement but I am using the tools at my disposal as an MSP to start to raise awareness and address them. I’ll use this section of the website to provide details of my campaigns and updates as appropriate.

 

Rail Link for Robroyston

Rail Link for Robroyston

In August I wrote to Transport Minister Humza Yousaf making the case for a railway station in Robroyston. Robroyston suffers very poor public transport links and the building of 1,600 new houses in the area is going to put pressure on local infrastructure. The Scottish Government has committed £5bn to rail improvements over the course of this Parliament.

It has also recently allocated an addition £100m for infrastructure, to offset the negative effects of Brexit. Some of that must be made available for a rail link in Robroyston. I also put down a motion in the Parliament which I hope other Glasgow-based MSPs will sign.
