Responding to the King’s Speech, Christine said: “Today I had hoped to hear fresh ideas for tackling the biggest issue for people in Edinburgh West – the cost-of-living crisis.
“People desperately need support with soaring mortgages and rents, sky-high energy bills, and high food prices forcing families to make difficult decisions.
“I also wanted to see urgent action on major national problems – investment in public transport, better support for bereaved young people, and more to help our major industries like hospitality and tourism.
“Instead, all we got were empty promises and recycled ideas in a King’s Speech that proved the Tory Government is out of touch with the people of Edinburgh West.
“From the cost-of-living to the climate and conversion therapy, I will be pushing the Government on their missed opportunities in Parliament next week.”
