GLASGOW MSPs have been handed roles in Anas Sarwar’s reshuffle of his front bench team.

The Scottish Labour leader has reset his team which he hopes will push for more Westminster seats at the next election likely to be next year.

There are posts for the other three Glasgow Labour MSPs under Sarwar as leader and his two new General Election campaign coordinators, deputy leader Jackie Baillie and MP Ian Murray.

He has appointed Pauline McNeill as justice spokesperson, Pam Duncan-Glancy as education and skills spokesperson and Paul Sweeney as spokesperson for mental health and veterans.

Other key posts include Ms Baillie as health social care and drugs spokesperson and Michael Marra as finance spokesperson.

Daniel Johnson is the party’s economy business and fair work spokesperson.

Paul O’Kane is the spokesperson for social justice and social security and Alex Rowley is the spokesperson for transport.

The rest of the team is:

Carol Mochan – public health and women’s health spokesperson.

Mark Griffin – local government and housing spokesperson.

Martin Whitfield – business manager and children and young people spokesperson.

Mercedes Villalba – environment and biodiversity spokesperson.

Rhoda Grant – rural affairs, land reform and islands spokesperson.

Neil Bibby - constitution, external affairs and culture spokesperson.

Foysol Choudhury – culture, Europe and international development spokesperson.

Katy Clark – community safety spokesperson.

Sarwar said the team will be ready for the next General Election.

He said: “At that election, only Scottish Labour can take seats from the SNP, kick the Tories out, and deliver the Labour government that Scotland badly needs.

“From implementing a meaningful windfall tax on oil and gas giants to creating GB Energy and the thousands of jobs that will bring to Scotland, a Labour government will transform our country.

“The road to that Labour government begins in Scotland. 

“It is my promise to you, that the Scottish Labour Party I lead will always focus on your priorities.”

Sarwar has rejected a call from Douglas Ross for tactical voting between Labour and Conservative supporters to vote for the candidate most likely to defeat an SNP candidate.

He said the idea of any electoral pact was “nonsense”.

Ross had said unionist supporters should “vote smart” to defeat the SNP.

The Conservative Party however later said that was not party policy and the SNP said it was the return of Better Together.
