This website was established while I was a Member of Parliament. As Parliament has been dissolved there are no Members of Parliament until after the Election on May 7 2015.

Welcome and thank you for visiting my website. It is designed to provide information for my constituents and to introduce you to Motherwell and Wishaw Constituency - the area I am proud to represent in Parliament, and the area where I was born, grew up in and where I still live.
The constituency covers Motherwell, Wishaw, parts of Bellshill and the villages of Mossend, New Stevenston, Carfin, Newarthill, Cleland, Newmains, Cambusnethan, Waterloo and Overtown.

Local MP welcomes Tories caving in to Labour Pressure on Fracking
