This month I was pleased to meet with Graham O’Neil from the Scottish Refugee Council. Graham and I discussed the plight of refugee’s going through the asylum process in the UK as well as the Syrian refugees who have been settled here in Edinburgh.
This month I was delighted to take part in a lively cross-party discussion hosted by Friends of Al-Aqsa on the plight of the Palestinian people. The multi-faith crowd packed the hall at the IQRA Academy where we discussed what action we can take here in Scotland to put pressure on Governments.
Westminster Hall recently hosted a debate on the Government’s proposed increase to the state pension age, and the detrimental effect this will have on some women, particularly those born in the mid-1950s.
Earlier this month I had the pleasure of meeting the Shelter Scotland staff at their South Charlotte Street office hub to discuss housing in the constituency and throughout Scotland.
