Parliament is now closed until after the General Election on Thursday, 6th May 2021

Session 5 of Parliament ceased to sit at 18:12 on Wednesday, 24th March 2021. From that date, when a campaign recess started, until 5th May 2021, when I cease to be an MSP, under Parliamentary rules I am only allowed to take on new casework if it is urgent. Constituents will be asked to provide an explanation for anything that needs to be categorised as urgent.

We expect to continue with casework upon which we commenced action prior to 5th May, until 1st August if necessary.
We will continue to regularly check voicemails and emails and are receiving physical mail addressed to our office at a staff member's home address. But due to Coronavirus we are not engaging in face to face contact.

If urgent, please contact us at office@stewartstevenson.scot or phone 01779 470444.

Please do not use social media to make requests to us as these personal accounts are monitored infrequently.

Please do not visit the office as we are all working from home.

Stevenson Welcomes Digital Packs for North-East Schools

Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed a digital donation to help support secondary school pupils in the north-east.

It comes after supermarket Asda announced it was working with Dell Technologies to donate 7,000 laptops to partner schools across the UK to help tackle digital exclusion.

Fraserburgh North School and Peterhead Academy will both receive 10 laptop bundles each.

Each tech bundle includes a headset and dongle and laptops will include a one-year warranty and technical support.

According to Ofcom, around 9% of children in the UK - between 1.1million and 1.8million - do not have access to a laptop, desktop or tablet at home.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“I welcome this funding from Asda to help support schools in the north-east which will help to close the gap in digital poverty.

“The coronavirus pandemic has emphasised the very real challenges and disparity across society in access to digital technologies. This support will go a long way to help pupils in their learning both in school and at home.”
