We must end the leasehold scandal.

With Select Committee pressure, pressure from an APPG, and the Law Commission recommendations, and a cross-party consensus that radical reform is needed it should not be beyond a government to deliver.

It is our favourite time of year again, Co-operatives Fortnight!

It is a chance to show people what co-operation is and why it is an altogether better way of doing business. As Convenor of the Cross Party Group on Co-operatives in the Scottish Parliament I submitted a motion to celebrate the co-ops across the UK that are doing just this; changing lives, changing communities and creating a better, more equal future.

Building safer, stronger communities with co-operative solutions

I am delighted to welcome the Co-operative Party’s new report, Rebuilding Policing & Criminal Justice, which seeks to develop co-operative approaches to policing which rebuild trust in our communities and create safer places to live and work.
