It is a privilege to represent the Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn constituency as your MSP. I stay in Maryhill with my wife Janet, and young son. Before I became an MSP, I was a secondary school teacher for 10 years. 

Since first being elected as a Glasgow MSP in 2007 I have worked hard to deliver for local constituents. As your constituency MSP for Maryhill and Springburn I hope to build on that progress, help to protect the communities I know best, and deliver to all people in Maryhill and Springburn

    By Bob Doris MSP

    19 and 20 May 2020

    I had great sympathy for the policy intent of these amendments and made a brief contribution on providing additional support for tenants here (see below). Whilst I did not vote for the specific amendments (explained below), I remain ready to work collaboratively with others to support tenants.

    There is much the Scottish Government is currently doing to support tenants but we must always stand ready to consider new suggestions. I want to thank all those who made representations to me on these matters.
