Euro-MP & Regional MSP Embark on West Aberdeenshire Surgery Tour

>> 22 August 2011

SNP Euro-MP Ian Hudghton will be embarking on his annual surgery tour of West Aberdeenshire towns and villages next week. Mr Hudghton will be visiting local communities in his Mobile Office on Thursday 1 September to allow constituents who may wish to raise any European-related issues direct access to him.

This year, Mr Hudghton will be joined by newly-elected MSP Mark McDonald, who represents the North-east Scotland region in the Scottish Parliament.

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, Ian 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.”


North-east Mark McDonald MSP added:

“Ian has a reputation as one of Scotland’s hardest-working Euro-MPs and ensures people in the North-east have access to him not just through his regional offices but face-to-face in their own communities.

“I’m looking forward to joining Ian on tour and will be happy to meet with any constituents who wish to discuss issues of concern which I can perhaps help with as one of their MSPs.”


Mr Hudghton, accompanied by Mark McDonald, will be available to constituents in his Mobile Office in the following locations and no appointment is necessary:

Thursday 1 September

11.00am HUNTLY, The Square
12.20pm INSCH, High Street
2.35pm ALFORD, Main Street car park
3.30pm TORPHINS, The Square
4.10pm ABOYNE, Station Square
5.00pm BANCHORY, Bellfield car park
