Here what I thought of the Chancellor's Budget!
Jamie is proud to be a co-signatory of Luke Graham's Private Members Bill on post offices and banking in rural communities, particularly given the Chancellor completely ignored the issue of bank closures in this year's budget!
The spaceport will bring jobs to the Far North of Scotland and Jamie wants to make sure that these jobs make the most of the skills we already have here.
The Government's roll out of Universal Credit and the Chancellor's announcements in the budget are no more than tinkering around the edges. Highland Council getting a £2.5m bill due to the flawed roll out is scandalous and I raised this today in the Chamber in the Budget debate
Poor broadband coverage is just one of the problems with the Government's Universal Credit roll out and Jamie raised this in the Commons this week.
Jamie has today asked the Prime Minister for the establishment of a Royal Commission to look into the extra delivery charges faced by those in the remotest parts of Scotland.
Broadband and Business
Today I asked the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy about business in the Far North. Good that the Secretary of State agrees with me that we need an upgrade in our broadband infrastructure, now we just need the government to put their money where their mouth is...
See what I got up to in the first week back in Westminster!
Jamie Stone led a Westminster Hall debate on consumer protections for new central heating systems.
During the second reading of the Agriculture Bill in the House of Commons, Jamie Stone, MP for Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross questioned the Secretary of State for the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs on the impact it will have on sheep farming in the Far North.
