By Bob Doris MSP

I welcome the Scottish Government announcement that pupils will return to schools in August, subject to scientific advice that it is safe to do so. 

Schools in Maryhill and Springburn will return on 11 August, while Early Learning and Childcare (ELC) settings will open over the summer.

19 and 20 May 2020

I had great sympathy for the policy intent of these amendments and made a brief contribution on providing additional support for tenants here (see below). Whilst I did not vote for the specific amendments (explained below), I remain ready to work collaboratively with others to support tenants.

There is much the Scottish Government is currently doing to support tenants but we must always stand ready to consider new suggestions. I want to thank all those who made representations to me on these matters.

My office has had a complaint regarding the miss-selling by electricity suppliers in the Wyndford. My constituent was informed that they must switch from Scottish Power to a new supplier for their electricity. THIS IS NOT TRUE.

SCOTTISH POWER HAVE CONFIRMED THIS AND THE BOGUS SALES PERSON HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM.

I have not named the other supplier that the miss-selling is apparently on behalf of. They have pledged to investigate. They will halt door step sales in the Wyndford in the meantime. I have asked that they do so across the entire constituency. We need to know if this was one bad apple or a miss-selling culture.

Please contact my office if you have experienced likewise and of course ofgem and the Police.
