Steven Paterson “My successor as Member of Parliament for the Stirling Constituency, Tory Stephen Kerr, distinguished himself in Parliament this week, but not in the way he intended.”
SNP MP Tommy Sheppard took part in a Westminster Hall debate this week (Tuesday) on Devolution in Scotland.
The Edinburgh MP – who is the SNP Spokesperson on the Cabinet Office, Scotland Office, and House of Lords – took part in the debate and highlighted how the Stirling Constituency had specifically benefitted from Scottish Government policies what did not exist in the rest of the UK.
Stirling SNP has called on Stirling’s Tory MP, Stephen Kerr, to support its calls to abandon the current UK Government policy of reducing the number of MPs that Scotland elects to Westminster.
The ‘Great Repeal Bill’ has been heavily criticised as a ‘Westminster Power Grab’ as it offers no further powers to the Scottish Parliament.
The rollout of Universal Credit to the Stirling area took place last month.
Whilst the SNP Government here in Scotland is working to deliver fair pay to the public sector on limited resources, our local Tory Member of Parliament is using his time in the Commons to block fair pay for nurses.
