Annual Report 2016-2017

I’m pleased to publish my annual report which outlines the work that I’ve undertaken since May 2016.

The past year has been challenging in terms of the issues that we’ve faced in Inverclyde. My office has seen a 52% increase in the number of welfare and pension cases in particular, with constituents also frequently contacting me about tax credits and broadband connectivity.

However, there are positives and it has been a privilege to meet and support the many individuals and organisations that are working within our community.

I’ve also managed to make progress on plans to re-develop Spango Valley, with a working group established and a draft feasibility study completed.

Unfortunately an unexpected general election just two years into the job has meant that I’ve had to delay all of my work, including constituency casework.

I hope to be re-elected on the 8th of June so that I am able to hit the ground running after the election and continue to build on the progress that we’ve made over the past two years.
