It’s great to be at home

Paisley Daily Express - - A Newlandscape -

Par­lia­ment is on re­cess this week so it’s great to be based in the con­stituency and have put the time to good use.

I met with Bridge of Weir Leather staff to learn more about their im­pres­sive busi­ness and to hear about their con­cerns re­gard­ing Brexit. I also met with the CEO of the Mal­colm Group, An­drew Mal­colm, in Lin­wood to learn more about their work.

Both com­pa­nies are long-es­tab­lished lead­ers in their fields, but the lifeblood of Scot­land’s econ­omy are SMEs and I was de­lighted to visit Jaw Brew in Hilling­ton. Jaw Brew re­cently won Fam­ily Busi­ness of the Year at the ROCCO awards in Novem­ber, an award co­in­ci­den­tally spon­sored by the Mal­colm Group.

After a busy few weeks in Lon­don, it is al­ways use­ful to catch up with the lo­cal com­mu­nity to get a better un­der­stand­ing of the con­cerns peo­ple have.

I have a num­ber of meet­ings this week and look for­ward to be­ing out and about in Ren­frew­shire.
