In Parliament

Party roles

As of 28 March 2023, I am the Shadow SNP Spokesperson for Home Affairs in the House of Commons. This means that my work in Parliament includes and focuses on scrutiny of UK Government policy under the purview of the Home Office, including immigration law, drugs, policing, the security services, and counter-terrorism.

In the past I have also served in a number of other spokesperson roles, including as Shadow SNP Treasury Spokesperson (20 June 2017 to 12 December 2022), Shadow SNP Spokesperson for Housing, Communities and Local Government (1 July 2018 – 7 January 2020) and Shadow SNP Spokesperson for Cities (20 May 2015 – 1 July 2018)


As the SNP Westminster spokesperson for Home Affairs, I currently sit on the Home Affairs Committee, as well as the bill committees for the Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill and the Finance (No.2) Bill.
