Tuesday (9th February 2016)

On Tuesday, Marion had a busy day at Westminster undertaking parliamentary meetings and attending a variety of meetings, including being present at the All Party Parliamentary Group on Steel and Metal Related Industry meeting.


Wednesday (10th February 2016)

As usual Wednesday morning saw Marion attend the weekly meeting of the Education Select Committee.

Later in the day, the Motherwell and Wishaw MP appeared on the BBC’s Politics Scotland show to discuss the new fiscal framework for Scotland. A video of the segment can viewed on Marion’s Facebook page.



Thursday (11th February 2016)

Thursday boasted another busy day of meetings, briefings and parliamentary duties. In contrast to Marion’s nationwide appearance on live television the previous day, Thursday resulted in the MP spending the majority of the day working hard within the confines of the House of Commons estate!


Friday (12th February 2016)

On Friday, Marion was back in the constituency working from her office in Motherwell. The day brought with it a number of meetings with local people and organisations.

Marion and Clare Adamson MSP were also delighted to meet with Chief Superintendent Roddy Irvine, the new Divisional Commander for Lanarkshire who will be based at the division’s headquarters at Motherwell Police Office.


Earlier in the day, some of Marion’s constituency office staff were at Theo’s Cafe in the Orbiston Neighbourhood Centre to offer assistance and information on the MP’s behalf. This is a monthly surgery which takes place in the same venue on the second Friday of each month and anyone living locally with a concern they wish to raise or a question they wish to ask is encouraged to attend in the coming months.
