Scottish Labour Party candidate for Dundee East
"I feel privileged to have been selected to stand for Dundee East as the Labour Party candidate for the life changing General Election.
"I can see the growth in Dundee of poorly paid, insecure employment, and how this effects particularly young people and women, and also how many local people are forced to live in expensive, and poorly maintained housing.
"As a trade union activist and caseworker I know first hand the need for employment law reform.
"So, I am delighted that high on the list of Labour Party proposals are : the banning of zero hours contracts, a living wage for all, rent control measures, and the repeal of Conservative Party anti-trade union legislation.
"Against the austerity policies and cuts of the Conservatives and the SNP, I stand for improved opportunities in housing, education, work and health, for all and not just for a privileged few."
