Phil Boswell is standing for re-election as the SNP candicate in the Westminster General Election

Since his election as MP for Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill in May 2015, Phil has been a hard-working MP who has campaigned on a wide range of issues.  In the face of a majority Tory Government which is fixated on a hard Brexit and on an ideological programme of austerity, Phil has been a consistent champion for the people of North Lanarkshire in Westminster.

Here's just some of the work he has undertaken on your behalf:

WASPI - Phil has proactively suppported the WASPI campaign against the increase to state pension age for women.  He has consistently given a voice to the women affected by this injustice. 

PUBLIC ACCOUNTS COMMITTEE - Phil is the only Scottish MP on the highly influential Public Accounts Committee.  They hold the Government to account for its use of public money.  Phil has the highest attendance and engagement record of any committee member, other than the Chair.  You can check out what the Committee does at the link below - and you can ask yourself why is it that we hear so little about the work of this committe on the main stream media?

MENTAL HEALTH - Phil is passionate about promoting good mental health for all and support for those in need.  He is the Patron of Chris' House (the only 24 hr centre for help, response and intervention on suicide) and recently got involved in the Kilt Walk and the Chris's House Walk of Hope on behalf of the charity.  Apologies for the terrible selfie from the Walk of Hope - but who takes a good selfie at that time of the night!

Since his election two years ago, Phil has also:

  • helped constituents with over 3,200 cases across a range of issues, including social security, housing, energy & utilities,  social services & social care,  transport, employment and animal welfare.
  • Spoken up in Parliament on behalf of constituents 205 times
  • Lodged 162 written questions on behalf of constituents

Now Phil is seeking your support to be returned as the MP for Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill.  Every donation will help ensure Phil is returned as part of a strong SNP team in Westminster, standing up for Scotland and fighting your corner against the Tory Government at Westminster.

Please note that, should you be kind enough to donate over £50 to our campaign, your name and address will be checked against the electoral register to ensure that you are eligible to donate.  Your name, but not your address, will be made available by the council on request after the election.
