Welcome to my website

Thank you for visiting my website. The main purpose of this site is to keep the people of Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross up to date with my campaign to continue to be your MP after the 2015 General Election. This site 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 the 7th of May 2015.

Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross has fantastic coast lines and beautiful scenery but being one of the largest and most remote constituencies in the UK is not without its challenges! I have worked closely with my colleagues to make sure the Far North has a strong voice at every level of Government and to make sure our area's particular needs are heard.

On my website you can read the latest news about my work you can also find details of hustings, meetings and events.

If you cannot find the information you require, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Best regards,
