High standing for Angus MP

Angus MP Mike Weir has come tenth in the ballot of MPs to introduce a Private Members Bill in the current session of Parliament.

The high placing in the list means any bill which he introduces has a good chance of being debated in the House of Commons.

Mr Weir said that he had not yet definitely decided on which bill he would introduce: “I have a few ideas of possible bills in the areas of employment rights and energy, both of which are interests of mine but I will be consulting with colleagues to decide what to bring forward.”
