Patrick Grady, SNP MP for Glasgow North, has used the first days of business in the House of Commons to lodge written questions and and early day motion, and attend important debates in the Chamber.
Commenting, Patrick Grady said: "The day of the Queen's Speech was the first chance for new members to start taking part in Commons business, and I wanted to get straight to work. I've lodged questions to the Department for International Development about its response to the earthquakes in Nepal, and an Early Day Motion congratulating my old employer, SCIAF, on its 50th anniversary as the official aid and development agency of the Church in Scotland.
"I've also been able to attend the debate on zero-hour contracts, and today's debate on Justice and Home Affairs issues, where our Justice Spokesperson Joanna Cherry made clear the SNP's opposition to Tory plans to scrap the Human Rights Act.
"And this evening, Alex Salmond reinforced our opposition to Trident and serious concerns about safety at the Faslane Naval Base. So two days in, it's great to see the SNP being the strong voice for Scotland in Westminster that we pledged to be."
