The Week Ahead: 9th-13th December

On Monday, I attended the WILPF Chrystal Macmillan Fundraising Dinner in Leith, Edinburgh.

On Tuesday morning, I have office time and my staff meeting.  I’ll then be greeting a group of young people from Newbattle Abbey College, followed by my grouping meeting.  In the afternoon, there is a chamber debate on Human Rights, which I’ll attend.  To finish the day, I am attending the Cross-Party Group on Rural Policy.

Wednesday morning takes me to the Finance Committee, where we’ll discussing a variety of issues, and taking evidence from an expert on Fiscal Policy.  I’ll also be attending a Member’s Debate during the day, and will finish by attending the Cross-Party Group on Poland, of which I am Deputy Convener.

Thursday is less busy for me, so I’ll have time for administrative work.  At 12PM, I’ll attend First Minister’s Questions, and then take a train to Inverness later.  I’ll be spending most of my weekend in Shetland.
