This Week #52

12th – 18th June 2017

On Monday, it was back to London for Marion as the recently re-elected MP for Motherwell & Wishaw returned to work at Westminster.

Marion Gets Back to Work (13th June 2017)

Following last week’s General Election, Motherwell and Wishaw MP, Marion Fellows, has thanked constituents for giving her their backing as she gets back to work.

The General Election saw yet another SNP victory with the majority of Scottish seats re-electing SNP MPs. This has allowed the SNP to retain its status as the third largest party in Parliament giving their MPs more opportunities to influence and hold the UK Government to account.

Marion has wasted no time and made the journey to Westminster on Sunday to get back to work.

Commenting from Parliament, Marion said:

“I must thank the people of Motherwell and Wishaw investing their trust in me again. I am privileged that I will continue to represent our amazing communities.

“The election result was another great SNP win with the Tories’ hard Brexit and austerity agenda being firmly rejected across the UK.

“I’m eager to get back to work helping people and fighting for local issues: investing in the economy, communities and services; reforming the Child Maintenance Service to lift children out of poverty; and securing pension rights.

“As a party, the SNP thanks the people of Scotland for backing us once again and we are more eager now than ever to fight for Scotland.”

Wednesday witnessed the tragic Grenfell tower disaster, with Marion and her office responding to concerns from constituents living in the forty-eight towers in North Lanarkshire.

In the afternoon, Marion was sworn in at Parliament officially confirming her as the re-elected Member of Parliament for Motherwell and Wishaw.

On Friday, Marion was back home working from her constituency office in the Dalziel Building, Motherwell, dealing with casework, discussing matters with constituents and local organisations, and continuing to work hard for the people of Motherwell and Wishaw despite the disruption of the recent General Election.

I was delighted to visit the Beechwood Care Home today as part of their open day celebrations.

It was fantastic to meet with Manager Cathy Togneri and I had a great time joining in the various activities and sing-songs!
