MPs have the power to change things for dying people who are suffering unimaginably at the end of their lives.

We need to ensure that dying people are given control and the choice of an assisted death. #YesToDignity

If you get Pension Credit you could also get ยฃ650 worth of support for the cost of living.

I would encourage any older constituents to make a claim by 18th August to ensure they receive the full Cost of Living Payment.

I'm pleased @wendychambLD is taking forward a Private Member's Bill focused on providing Carers Leave to millions of family carers. Carers play such a valuable role in our communities, which is why I intend to support the Bill at 2nd Reading on 9 September.

High temperatures can be extremely dangerous for dogs, especially if left in a hot car. So, it's important we take preventative action and are able to recognise the signs of distress.

Follow @DT_Pawlitical @DogsTrust's warm weather advice this summer to protect your dogs.

Lovely Church service at Ayrโ€™s Auld Kirk yesterday with @allandoransMP and @AyrshireABC celebrating the life of Rabbie Burns. In his short 37 yrs, he captured 18th cent ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ through song and poetry and his legacy continues to shine bright 226 yrs later.

Delighted to have the opportunity to speak in favour of the Neonatal Care (Leave & Pay) Bill in Parliament yesterday. Congratulations to Stuart MacDonald SNP for choosing and introducing this as his Private Members Bill @Stuart_McDonald @Blisscharity

I'm supporting #ArrivalsDutyFree.
ย 
Travel retail sales are crucial to the financial stability of Prestwick Int Airport. As international travelย resumes, duty free stores on arrival will provide further support.

It's good for business, good for travel and good for theย UK.

A few of the cross party and no political party, YES supporters, at the Ayr for Independence street stall this afternoon. Delighted to meet new activists committed to independence and to have positive conversations with people seeking information about independence for Scotland.

Delighted to meet with Depute Service Lead, Julie Neil and team from Cumnock Job Centre Plus today. Their team work incredibly hard to support those most in need, and often do not get the credit they rightly deserve. Check out @JCPinSWScot to keep up to date with their events.

Iโ€™m pleased to support @Sue_Ryder in calling for improvements to bereavement support. Their research showed 70% of respondents who had experienced a close bereavement said that they could not access the support they would have liked.

Attended an information session on the menopause. One of the most common and upsetting symptoms is hot flushes. Invited to try on a MenoVest which simulates hot flushes Very uncomfortable and gave me an indication of how women are adversely affected at this time of their lives.

This #WorldRefugeeWeek I'm pleased to send a clear message to the UK Government - refugees are welcome here.

I want to recognise and welcome the refugees who have made Ayrshire their home, and who bring so much to our local community.

This week is #CervicalScreeningAwarenessWeek.

Privileged to attend Armed Forces Day in Ayr to thank and acknowledge our armed forces, past and present, for their service. We are forever in their debt. Photos of Reverend David Gemmell who conducted the flag raising service and Provost Iain Campbell of South Ayrshire Council.

The Governmentโ€™s plan to deport people to #Rwanda is a disgrace and must be stopped.

I am standing against the #AntiRefugeeLaws which seek to punish those who need protection.

As a former Police Officer, I understand stress comes with the job & we must deal with this. However, it's unhelpful for the media to suggest mental health illnesses are soaring among our officers, when figures show these absences are, in fact, falling: https://www.thenational.scot/politics/20205131.headlines-soaring-mental-illness-among-police-irresponsible/

Iโ€™m pleased to add my name to this cross-party letter urging the Prime Minster to cancel tomorrowโ€™s deportation flight to #Rwanda. This is a shameful and abhorrent plan which must be dropped immediately.

Great to see my colleague @allandoransMP today as we attended Auld Kirkโ€™s church service for the Queens platinum jubilee. Always in awe of the church Rabbie Burns attended and the great history. ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ

Pleased to attend a meeting of the Women Against State Pension Injustice (WASPI) group this afternoon in Ayr and delighted to be recognised and presented with a WASPI HERO AWARD for my support for the cause since 2017. The campaign for justice for the WASPI women continues !

Every month I have a column in the @cumnockchron

I support a ban on foie gras made by force-feeding. We agreed it's too cruel to produce in the UK, now letโ€™s finally end the hypocrisy by banning all foie gras imports! Read @animal_equalityโ€™s new report: https://bit.ly/foie_gras_report

Dementia is one of our greatest long term health challenges, with a devastating impact on individuals and their loved ones. That's why I've written to @SyedKamall in support of @AlzResearchUK's call for a Dementia Medicines Taskforce.

Today marks the start of #CarersWeek2022!

Carerโ€™s have, and continue to, work tirelessly to provide support to loved ones throughout our community.

I want to sincerely thank all the carers in the constituency for their compassion, dedication and commitment to helping others.

38 years after the death of SNP deputy leader Willie McRae a fatal accident enquiry still remains refused

The death was sudden suspicious and unexplained.
I call upon the Lord advocate to start inquiry into the death of Willie McRae
If you agree please RT and show your support

I have written to the Chancellor on behalf of my constituents in Ayr, Carrick and Cumnock on the urgent need to protect the banking and cash networks for the many who still rely upon it.

I will continue to campaign to prevent any further bank closures:
