Arran’s MP, Patricia Gibson has successfully urged Parliamentary monitoring website, They Work For You, which publishes information to keep citizens informed about what MPs do at Westminster, to add a disclaimer to its website which states: ‘Note: SNP MPs do not generally vote on legislation not affecting Scotland, as these matters are devolved to the Scottish Parliament’.

Mrs Gibson said: ‘Tory list MSP Jamie Greene has repeatedly attempted to smear and undermine me and other SNP MPs by suggesting that we “miss” Commons votes because we do not vote on England only matters.  This allegation is designed to deliberately mislead.

‘I am pleased that the matter has now been clarified by They Work For You, which is the responsible thing to do.  I hope now that these opportunistic attempts to smear and besmirch my record of hard work and commitment to my constituents will stop and Mr Greene will switch his focus to policy.’
