Milngavie residents turn out for meeting on the referendum

As part of her Road to Referendum campaign, East Dunbartonshire MP Jo Swinson held a lively and well attended meeting on independence with local residents in Milngavie Town Hall last week.  


After three positive meetings in Bearsden, Kirkintilloch and Bishopbriggs, Milngavie’s event saw a wide range of discussions including on Scotland’s future membership of the European Union and possible changes to pensions in an independent Scotland.

Commenting after the meeting, Jo said: 

“Many thanks to all those who attended last week’s lively discussion in Milngavie. We had a variety of interesting questions from both sides of the argument, with issues around the European Union particularly exercising questioners.  I hope those who attended left with clearer information with which to make up their minds. I look forward to meeting more local people at my next events, so please do spread the message about these meetings to friends and relatives. 

“A vote for Scotland to remain part of the UK is a vote for more secure finances and a stronger presence on the world stage. With further powers set to be devolved to the Scottish Parliament, we can have the best of both worlds by voting against independence on September 18th.”

 All Jo’s Road to Referendum events start at 7pm, and the future meetings are listed below:

  • Tuesday 29th July, Caldwell Halls, Torrance
  • Thursday 28th August, Lenzie Public Hall
  • Friday 5th September, Baldernock Church Hall, Balmore
