The UK government must act to support those falling through the gaps in Covid-19 support

Back Bench Debate on Support for Self-employed and Freelance Workers This afternoon I raised the cases of just a few of my constituents who have fallen through the gaps in UK government support. It’s not too late for Rishi Sunak to listen and to act to help the millions affected. https://youtu.be/KldFeOmvNoc

The impact of Covid-19 on tourism in Edinburgh. All of us who are fortunate enough to live in this wonderful city are well aware that usually our city is inundated with tourist each summer.

Tory assault on devolution ramps up as UK Gov publishes the Internal Market Bill

Make no mistake, clause 46 of the UK government’s internal market bill is a full frontal assault on devolution. The Secretary of State seems to be living in a parallel universe – watch my contribution from today’s Scotland questions: https://youtu.be/Z8C4zvB70JY

Devolution power-grab: smoking ban, free tuition, minimum alcohol pricing could have been stopped by UK under planned changes

  For my sins I lead for my party against Jacob Rees-Mogg every Thursday morning in parliament. You’ll most likely not have seen it. It is, in many ways, an acquired taste. Ostensibly, the purpose of these exchanges is to discuss the government’s agenda.

At today’s business questions I raised some really serious issues with Jacob Rees-Mogg. In return I got insults and nonsense instead of actual answers. https://youtu.be/qHgJa55Y2RM
