Na h-Eileanan an Iar SNP MSP Alasdair Allan has taken the step of closing his Constituency Office in Stornoway in light of the Scottish Government guidance regarding the COVID-19 virus.

All staff are working from home and Alasdair and his team can still be contacted by telephone or email in the normal way.

Commenting, Alasdair Allan MSP said;

“Anyone passing my Stornoway office will see that it is closed. To explain, my staff are all still at work, but I have asked them all to work from home. The strong official advice is that people should do this wherever they have the option. There is no change to the phone number or email address by which my staff and I can be contacted.

“As things stand, I am still going to Edinburgh and back every week from my home in Lewis, and still meeting people locally by phone and online. We are however all being asked to cut down on face to face meetings where possible for the duration of the present coronavirus epidemic.

“People should continue to make use of me and get in touch about any matter I can help on. I hope people will understand that my staff and I have been a little overwhelmed by coronavirus-related enquiries over the last few days, but we will try to get back to everyone soon. People have very real concerns about what the current situation will mean for their families, their businesses and for the island economy, and I am seeking to follow up these issues for many constituents with both governments and other agencies.”
