Na h-Eileanan an Iar SNP MP Angus Brendan MacNeil has been appointed as the SNP Spokesperson at Westminster on Environment and Rural Affairs.

SNP Westminster Leader Ian Blackford yesterday announced the new SNP team at Westminster.

The leadership team will hold the UK government to account, and represent the SNP in its role as the third party in the UK Parliament, and the largest party in Scotland.

Commenting Angus MacNeil MP said:

“As MP for Na h-Eileanan an Iar and an active crofter, I am delighted to have been appointed as the SNP Spokesperson on Environment and Rural Affairs.

“Scottish agriculture and rural communities are particularly reliant on the EU for investment, labour and financial support and with the commencement of the Brexit negotiations the UK Government must deliver more transparency around this process.

“The SNP will be the strong and effective opposition to this weak Tory government – using our influence to further Scotland’s interests and deliver fairer, progressive policies, to make our country the best it can be.”
