Following my ‘Your Views Really Matter’ survey last year, I have now launched a second survey ‘Listening to Your Views’. From talking to people in our area, I know that many are worried about their jobs, their pensions, and the general cost of living and about the threat to vital public services. I live locally, I understand the concerns of local parents, pensioners and young people, and want to help solve the problems our communities face.
As your local MP, I want to know your views and the views of people like you, so that I can continue to voice your concerns in the House of Commons. More importantly, I want to see those concerns acted upon.
I understand that finding the time to come to one of my regular Advice Surgeries can be difficult. To ensure I know your views I have launched a private online survey. All responses to the survey are anonymous. To take part follow the link here.
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. There are two MSPs for the area, John Pentland MSP, who represtents Motherwell, Wishaw and Newmains and Michael McMahon MSP, who represents Bellshill.
If you are unfortunate enough not to live in this area you can find out who your Member of Parliament is through the House of Commons Information Office.
Also on this site you will find my views on various issues, my press releases and some photographs of my activities as a working Member of Parliament.

Local MP welcomes Tories caving in to Labour Pressure on Fracking
Last week in the House of Commons Labour proposed an amendment to stop fracking unless a series of tough conditions are first met. At the last minute, and knowing that they were about to be defeated by Labour and their own backbenchers, the government accepted Labour’s amendment. This now means these robust regulatory conditions and protections are now in the Bill, and if it receives Royal Assent will become law.
