This Week: Recess Review

18th April 2017

31 March – 17 April 2017

The UK Parliament is an incredibly busy place when it is in session. However, there are often recesses throughout the year. From the 31st of March until the 17th of April, the Parliament was in its Easter recess hence why, if you keep an eye on what Marion’s up to through the “This Week” feature, you’d have perhaps noticed no updates over the period!

Of course, this doesn’t mean that the Motherwell & Wishaw MP has been sitting with her feet up in front the telly! Far from it – Marion has been incredibly busy over the past weeks working hard on casework in her Dalziel Building office, planning for the coming months back at Westminster, and being out and about in the constituency, talking to local people, assisting with issues, and meeting local charities, organisations, and businesses.

Here are some of the highlights from a busy summer back in North Lanarkshire:

Marion took the opportunity of a rare Monday evening home to address Motherwell and Wishaw branch of the Scottish National Party.

Marion had a fantastic trip to Daiwa Sports Ltd, located in Netherton Industrial Estate, meeting with General Manager Jim Robert and spending some time learning about such an innovative, forward-thinking, and successful manufacturer located within the constituency.

The MP attended the Dedication of a Victoria Cross Commemorative Paving Stone in memory of Cambusnethan man William J Milne VC, who received the Victoria Cross during the 1st World War.

Marion visited HMP Shotts to discuss changes made to Prison Officers’ pensions and to learn more about the work they undertake.

The MP was delighted to attend the The SPFL Trust’s Trusted Trophy Tour’s Fir Park stop yesterday afternoon, celebrating the fantastic work done by the club’s Community Trust.
