Eilidh Whiteford MP unveils surgery tour

Banff & Buchan MP Eilidh Whiteford will be embarking on her third surgery tour next week.

The SNP MP is aiming to cover communities stretching from Rothienorman in the far south-west to Inverallochy in the north-east and almost 30 other communities in between.

The local MP has been busy preparing for the tour and is looking forward to getting out and about into some of the smaller communities which she represents.

Looking ahead to the marathon tour, Eilidh commented:“I’m keen to get around as many communities in Banff & Buchan as possible during the Parliamentary recess and this is an excellent way to do it.

“Many people choose to use e-mail or websites to contact me these days, but I’ve found during the last two years that it is important for people to be able to have access to their local MP in their own community. There’s no appointment necessary unlike the ‘static’ surgeries which I hold and constituents are welcome to raise issues with me, discuss aspects of policy, or just simply drop by for a chat. I’m looking forward to meeting as many people as possible during the tour.”
