MP ‘thrilled’ at new role

The Galloway News - - FARMING -

Dum­fries and Gal­loway MP Alis­ter Jack has been ap­pointed as Par­lia­men­tary Pri­vate Sec­re­tary (PPS) to the leader of the House of Lords.

As PPS to Baroness Evans of Bowes Park, Mr Jack will li­aise be­tween the Com­mons and Lords. He will work with the Whips’ of­fices in both Houses as key Brexit leg­is­la­tion comes for­ward in the months ahead.

In what is a two- way process, he will also re­lay what the Lords are think­ing back to the Gov­ern­ment.

Mr Jack was “thrilled” to have been ap­pointed to the role by Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May.
