Short Title: Govanhill Law Centre
S3M-02941 Mr Frank McAveety (Glasgow Shettleston) (Lab): That the Parliament
welcomes the opening of the Govanhill Law Centre, a new law centre offering free legal advice to residents of Govanhill, which will work with the local community to root out slum landlords, gangmasters and organised criminals; congratulates principal solicitor Mike Dailly for his commitment to the centre; thanks Glasgow City Council leader Steven Purcell and Govanhill Housing Association chairperson Janice McEwan for their work on behalf of the centre; further thanks Louise Carlin of Oxfam Scotlandâ€™s Poverty Programme for the charity organisationâ€™s ongoing support, and hopes that the Govanhill Law Centre will help empower the community to solve the problems that it faces and provide further confidence to residents in their campaign for a better Govanhill.
Hmm. Is this the same guy who was quite close to backing a legal challenge against the election of Kenny Gibson (what a tragedy, we would have no business!) and then said the whole Holyrood Election should be re-run?
The guy who has regularly slagged off the SNP and is a Labour party member as far as I am aware, if not a former Candidate in some way.
Old Frank should be careful, this backinf of Housing Associations can backfire...
