Tory MP's Lack of Contact Over Brexit Letting Down Constituents

The MP representing Banff and Buchan has failed to meet with key UK Government ministers about Brexit for almost a year, new data has revealed.

The revelation comes after the information came to light in a Freedom of Information (FOI) request.

It showed that despite the Scottish Tory group heading to Westminster proclaiming to be a strong voice for Scotland, they have failed to represent North-East interests on the biggest subject matters of the day.

Tory David Duguid MP, despite representing a huge fishing community, has failed to meet ministers about Brexit since June last year.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“The MP for Banff and Buchan David Duguid, hasn’t even bothered to lift a finger and engage with the UK government on the biggest issue of the day, save for a quick photo-op last June, says it all about how useless they are - these arrogant Tories think they can do anything to Scotland and get away with it.

“They’re completely ignored, to the point that Ruth Davidson is left so out of the loop that she proclaims that fishing interests will be protected, just days before the UK government’s sell out – you couldn’t make it up.

“This lack of contact with the UK government’s Brexit department is letting down constituents across the Banffshire and Buchan Coast.

“David Duguid went to Westminster promising to be a strong voice representing Banff and Buchan and Scotland’s interests, yet all they are is lobby fodder for Theresa May’s failing Government.

“You’d have hoped that there might have been something to motivate David Duguid and his colleagues to speak to their bosses about Brexit since last June – from protecting Scotland’s fisheries, supporting single market membership in the wake of the UK government’s own Brexit impact assessment, or raising concerns about the Irish border – but seemingly not.”
