I am writing to ask if you might include in the next issue my thanks for the welcome and hospitality I received when I was on Tiree.
I had of course visited before – when I was Environment Minister – but it was good to be able to come back as the SNP Parliamentary Candidate.
I had a lot of important issues raised with me and I would intend, if elected, to hold a surgery from time to time on the island as well as making myself available from my constituency office to tackle problems and help local people as they require.
Having spent five years living on Benbecula – and have a wife from North Uist – I know a bit about island life and as I have lived for almost 20 years in Glendaruel I am also up to speed on Argyll & Bute concerns.
