General Election Statement

Following the Prime Ministers announcement that she will seek approval from Parliament to hold a General Election on 8 June 2017, Drew Hendry MP said:

Calling this election is clear signal that it’s the narrow interests of the Tory party Theresa May is concerned with – there can be no doubt that she is attempting to force through a hard Brexit and increasingly right wing policies on Scotland.

We just have to look to the shambolic rollout of Universal Credit to see the devastating effects Tory polices are having on families across our constituency and I’m sure voters here will want to send a strong message that they reject this Tory power grab and all that it stands for.

I will be offering myself to the Party for selection, to continue the job of standing up for the people of Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch & Strathspey.

It’s time for Scotland’s voice to be heard, louder than ever.
