Important Announcement

Please note that Parliament will dissolve at 00:01hrs on Wednesday 3rd May until after the General Election and during this time there will be no Members of Parliament.

Due to the rules and regulations of dissolution, I will be unable to hold surgeries or take on any casework. I sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

If you are in need of assistance there are other organisations and representatives you can contact in the mean time. I will include links to these below.

My office telephone number will also be out of use during this time.

My office staff and I are committed to helping any constituents who have contacted us previously and if you are awaiting a response to an enquiry made on your behalf, we will be in touch with you over the course of the next few weeks if we have not done so already.

The following website is useful in understanding what different representatives such as MSP's and Councillors can deal with. If you have an issue, I recommend firstly finding out who the most appropriate person is to contact.


Agencies and departments that can offer further support and advice are:

Citizen's Advice Scotland


Welfare Rights






UK Visas and Immigration


Scottish Welfare Fund
