The SMP is extremely grateful to Patrick Grady MP for his strong continued support, and to Stephen Gethins (MP for North East Fife), Deidre Brock (MP for Edinburgh North and Leith), Kirsten Oswald (MP for East Renfrewshire) and Dr Lisa Cameron (MP East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow) who all spoke passionately about Scotland’s friendship with Malawi.

A significant proportion of all Scotland’s MPs stayed late in the chamber to watch and contribute to the debate.  SMP members are spread across all 59 constituencies in Scotland and we continue to brief all MPs on Malawi links in their constituency.  We are grateful for the continued cross-party support Scotland’s links with Malawi continues to have in both Holyrood and Westminster.
