Following the SNP’s landslide election victory in Scotland, Ian Blackford has unveiled the SNP’s new frontbench team at Westminster.
With Boris Johnson’s Tories shifting further to the extremes and imposing a disastrous Brexit on Scotland against its will, while Labour is set to spend months on internal squabbling, the SNP will act like the real opposition at the House of Commons.
The newly-elected MPs will bring a wealth of talent and experience from their careers in our NHS, schools, journalism and international affairs – and they’re getting straight to work to hold the Tories to account, fight austerity and stand up for Scotland in the face of growing threats of a hard-right Tory government.
Ian Blackford MP – SNP Westminster Leader
Kirsty Blackman MP – Westminster Deputy Leader
Kirsty Blackman also takes on a key strategic role leading on the constitution, as preparation builds up for Scotland’s independence referendum.
