The lead Scottish Conservative candidate for next month’s European elections visited Tunnock’s factory in Uddingston.

Dr Ian Duncan, who is from Alyth, Perthshire, met with members of the Tunnock family, as well as some of the workforce.

He was joined on the visit by Bothwell and Uddingston councillor Anne Kegg.

Tunnock Biscuits have been based in Uddingston since 1890 and their biscuits are widely regarded throughout the world as an iconic symbol of Scottish entrepreneurship.

Dr Duncan said: “It was a great privilege to visit Tunnock’s factory and meet members of the Tunnock family and workforce.

“Tunnock’s biscuits are recognised throughout the world for their quality and they are a fantastic ambassador for Scottish business.

“If I am elected to the European Parliament in May, I will be doing my utmost to promote great Scottish brands like Tunnock’s.”

Scotland votes on Thursday, May 22, to elect six candidates who will represent the country in the European Parliament for the next five years.
