I currently sit as a full member of two of the European Parliament's Committees.
Environment, Public Health and Food Safety Committee
As Scotland`s former Climate Change Minister who also represented Scotland in the Paris climate talks I know we are stronger and more effective by working together. I am a full member of the Environment Committee of the European Parliament so I can fully support Scotland's climate ambitions and actions.
Constitutional Affairs Committee
Th Constitutional Affairs Committee has a key role to play in Brexit as it is responsible for the institutional consequences of withdrawal from the EU. I will ensure Scotland's voice is heard in these conversations.
Norway and Iceland are some of Scotland's closest neighbours and I am delighted to be a member of the European Parliament Delegation for Northern cooperation and for relations with Switzerland and Norway and to the EU-Iceland Joint Parliamentary Committee and the European Economic Area (EEA) Joint Parliamentary Committee.
