MORAY TRADE UNIONISTS had their annual visit from Moray MSP Richard Lochhead this week when they were updated on his work in the constituency.

Mr Lochhead also made himself available for questions from local members when they met in Elgin on Monday.

Topics covered included the implementation of the Named Person Scheme and the business rates bonus scheme, as well as police morale and the perennial hot topic of rural broadband connectivity.

Following the meeting Moray Trades Council chair Eileen Morrison said: “We really appreciate Richard taking the time out of his hectic schedule to meet with the Trades Council once again.

“The opportunity to put questions directly to our local MSP gives members the chance to really dig into the issues that matter most to them.”

Mr Lochhead said that once again his visit had been a “learning experience”, adding: “Hearing the views of those from the coalface delivering services really helps me to make effective and relevant contributions to debates when in the Parliament.”

The group meets on the third Monday of every month at 7.15pm in the Seaforth club in Elgin. It is open to all local Trade Union members and supporters.
