SNP Euro-MP Ian Hudghton will be embarking on his annual surgery tour of North-east towns and villages next week.

Mr Hudghton will be visiting local communities in his Mobile Office on Thursday, November 8, to allow constituents who may wish to raise any European-related issues direct access to him.

Mr Hudghton’s surgery tour is now an established fixture and in previous years many people have taken up the opportunity to quiz their Euro-MP on various topics or raise issues of concern.

Previewing the tour, Mr Hudghton commented: “Last year’s tour was a great success, and I’m delighted to be able to expand it to increase the number of towns covered this year.

“Having represented only the North-east previously, it is now quite a challenge under this current electoral system where I share responsibility for the whole of Scotland, which is now one electoral “region”.

“However, I am determined that this should not mean that Euro-MPs become more remote from the public and this surgery tour is an excellent way of giving people direct access to me in their own community.”

Mr Hudghton will be available to constituents in his Mobile Office in the following locations:

Thursday, November 8 - 11am, St. Mary’s car park, Banff; 12 noon, Hanover Street car park, Frasrburgh; 2.15pm, Lido car park, Peterhead.

No appointment is necessary for the roadshow and all constituents are welcome to go along and meet with Mr Hudghton to raise any concerns they may have.
