Cllr Mackie attends Conservative Conference in Birmingham

Attending the national conference in Birmingham, the Highland Conservative Deputy Leader sets out how important it is to lobby colleagues on Highland issues.

"I always enjoy party conference but this year probably more than other it is vital that the voices of constituents are heard by the Government of the day and the organisations they control". "I have attended a number events focussing on regeneration, the rural economy and transport... but I have made a focussed effort to put forward how important the maritime industry is to the economy in the Far North."
