The Scot­land Of­fice

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Mar­garet has been given the role of the SNP’s spokesper­son on the Scot­land Of­fice.

But when I ask if it’s the prized role for an SNP politi­cians, she laughs:“I’ll tell you that in a few months time, it’s too early to say.

“Cer­tainly it’s ex­cit­ing and we’re all re­ally keen to get stuck into our dif­fer­ent pol­icy teams. Our pol­icy team has been men­tioned as the en­gine room of it all.

“I wasn’t sur­prised, I was very pleased, happy with the role I had been given.

“I am still learn­ing my­self, but any­thing that comes out of the Scot­land Of­fice I will be quite keen to keep and eye on what they are say­ing and what brief­ings they are putting out. I will be work­ing with David Mun­dell as well so any ques­tion to the Sec­re­tary of State for Scot­land, I will be get­ting in­volved in that.

“We’ve ac­tu­ally got pol­icy teams, my re­mit is in a wider pol­icy team of Scot­land and the con­sti­tu­tion.”

Fi­nally, I ask what she’ll ask if she gets the chance to quiz Prime Min­is­ter David Cameron at PM’s ques­tions.

She said:“I think there’s so many, I will be tak­ing my time and de­cid­ing which one. It’s a bal­lot so you’ve got the make the best of it.”
