MEP And SNP Candidate For Perthshire South and Kinross-Shire Hit The Campaign Trail

01 April 2011

SNP Member of the European Parliament Mr Alyn Smith will hit the campaign trail today (Friday) with SNP candidate for Perthshire South and Kinross-shire, Roseanna Cunningham.

Later in the evening, the SNP duo will be put in the hot seat at Kinross Question Time in the Thistle Hotel, Milnathort.

Alyn Smith said:

“I am looking forward to touring and campaigning around different villages in this picturesque constituency and most of all speaking to constituents.

"The people in this constituency want a strong and experienced voice to fight their corner and champion their needs in Holyrood. That person is Roseanna, and that's why I am backing her and showing my support."

Roseanna Cunningham, SNP Scottish Parliament Candidate for Perthshire South & Kinross-shire, said:

"I am delighted to have Alyn here in Kinross-shire this evening and am grateful to him for finding time out in his busy schedule to join me in some campaigning this afternoon.

"I know that our audience this evening will welcome the opportunity to hear about Alyn's work in Europe, particularly on the Agrticulture Committee.  Fighting Scotland's corner in Europe would be a far easier task if we had the normal status and powers of a Member State that Independence will bring but, in the meantime, the efforts of Alyn and his fellow SNP MEP, Ian Hudghton, is absolutely essential."
