Throughout all of next week the House of Commons is inviting people to participate in their #MpforaWeek in Campaign. From the 18th to the 22nd of April this campaign is highlighting the range of and value of MPs’ work in order to build better public understanding of the role of a Member of Parliament. The campaign is designed to tie in with the release of the updated ‘MP for a week’ game.

I like to do everything I can to bring about a greater understanding of what goes on down in Westminster. People rarely see what goes on outside of the chamber which is why I am more than happy to take part in the #MPforaWeek campaign.

My days are filled with tabling questions and debates, raising constituency matters in and out of the House, researching ahead of debates, preparing for my committee sessions, meeting constituents and external bodies.

Helping people understand the systems and structures in Westminster will contribute towards a more political engaged population and a greater willingness of people to engage with me as the MP for the whole of Inverclyde.
