MP and Cllr team up for surgery

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Niki Ten­nant

The first ever joint surgery be­tween an SNP MP and an SNP coun­cil­lor will take place in Cam­bus­lang later this week.

Mar­garet Ferrier MP and Coun­cil­lor Clare McColl will hold the surgery at Mor­risons su­per­mar­ket from noon on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 2.

Whilst both politi­cians hold reg­u­lar surg­eries of their own, they hope this joint surgery will en­able lo­cal res­i­dents to ad­dress a wider range of is­sues, both at lo­cal and na­tional lev­els.

Ms Ferrier said: “This will be the first of many such joint surg­eries.

“I’ve had a lot of peo­ple at­tend my surg­eries with coun­cil mat­ters, and this joint surgery will en­able those peo­ple to have di­rect ac­cess to a coun­cil­lor who can take up their case di­rectly.

Coun­cil­lor McColl added: “The rea­son for the SNP’s surge in sup­port in this area is be­cause we de­liver re­sults for con­stituents.

“If you have any prob­lem that you would like to speak to your coun­cil­lor or MP about for help or ad­vice, then please come along to Mor­risons on Fri­day - no ap­point­ment nec­es­sary.”
