Jack to crack the whip

AN MP from the region has been appointed to a key parliamentary role as the countdown begins to the UK’s scheduled departure from the EU.

Alister Jack has been made a Government assistant whip in the House of Commons.

Now he, along with colleagues, face the challenging job of trying to ensure their party’s MPs vote through contentious Government Brexit business.

His latest promotion follows a period on the influential Treasury Select Committee, then a Commons communication and liaison role as Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) to the Leader of the House of Lords.

Mr Jack commented that he felt honoured to have been asked and said: “I look forward to the challenges ahead and will do my utmost to make a useful contribution in the crucial days ahead as we prepare to leave the European Union.

“As always, though, my top priority will be representing the people of my Dumfries and Galloway constituency.”
