Mike appointed SNP Chief Whip

commenting on the appointment Mike said

“It is a great honour, although slightly daunting, to be appointed as the Chief Whip of the new group. The SNP are now the third largest party in the House of Commons and, as such, will have a much bigger role in the Chamber and Committees of the House.”

“I look forward to the challenges ahead as we articulate the opposition to the austerity policies of the Conservative government and put forward a positive agenda for change.”
