SNP si­lence on po­lice deaf­en­ing

Rutherglen Reformer - - MEMORY LANE -

con­firm if they are one of the forces un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion to end the spec­u­la­tion.

Such a move would not prej­u­dice any in­ves­ti­ga­tion and would give the Scot­tish peo­ple the an­swer they de­serve.

Over the past week, a cross­party con­sen­sus has emerged in Holy­rood for full trans­parency from the SNP Gov­ern­ment on the po­lice spy­ing row.

Scot­tish Labour tabled a mo­tion call­ing for trans­parency from the SNP Gov­ern­ment, which has cross­party sup­port from ev­ery other po­lit­i­cal party rep­re­sented in the cham­ber.

The SNP Gov­ern­ment are never shy about voic­ing their opin­ions on mat­ters they have no re­spon­si­bil­ity for.

Po­lice Scot­land has been un­der their con­trol since 2007.

They have ques­tions to an­swer and Scot­tish Min­is­ters must be held to ac­count.

I won­der what the SNP have to fear from a par­lia­men­tary in­quiry.

Scot­land de­serves an­swers on this from the very top.

Friends of Cam­bus­lang Park

I would like to say a mas­sive well done to the ex­cel­lent team at Friends of Cam­bus­lang Park who last Satur­day put on a fan­tas­tic fun day for lo­cal fam­i­lies.

There was plenty for the kids to en­joy with a bouncy castle, face paint­ing and even a pet­ting zoo.

At­tend­ing events like this is one of the real perks of be­ing your lo­cal MSP.

And I greatly en­joy work­ing along­side com­mu­nity groups who are com­mit­ted to mak­ing this area a bet­ter place to live.

Com­mu­nity Coun­cil sur­vey

On Satur­day, I took the op­por­tu­nity to show my sup­port for a sur­vey launched by Cam­bus­lang Com­mu­nity Coun­cil.

It is de­signed to find out what peo­ple think of Cam­bus­lang; what’s good, what’s bad and what needs to be im­proved.

The sur­vey can be found on the com­mu­nity coun­cil web­site.

Pa­per copies of the sur­vey are avail­able at the Cam­bus­lang Li­brary, Cam­bus­lang In­sti­tute, Cam­bus­lang Parish Church and East­field Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.

The sur­vey has two weeks left and I would strongly rec­om­mend lo­cal folk have their say.
