Harper goes high-tech

Harper goes high-tech… South Scotland MSP Emma Harper is offering online advice and support in the first of her virtual advice surgeries being held soon. Constituents across Dumfries and Galloway are encouraged to book an appointment with the South Scotland MSP, for Monday 1 June, by emailing Miss Harper or contacting her team by phone. The online sessions will run in both the morning (10am-11am) and the afternoon (5pm-6pm). Miss Harper has already been involved in a series of virtual meetings as Holyrood moves its business online during lockdown. She said: “Since lockdown restrictions began, like many other MSPs, I've been unable to physically attend in the Scottish Parliament chamber and committee meeting rooms but it's business as usual otherwise and I attend virtual meetings throughout the week and with my team we deal with daily issues arising from help needed from constituents who are struggling with a variety of challenges during the Covid-19 pandemic. “Since the beginning of lockdown we have been reaching out to hundreds of people we think may need support, as well as many of the region's businesses to identify immediate needs and assist them.” Anyone seeking an appointment for the virtual surgery should contact Emma.Harper.msp@parliament.scot
