Following his re-election on 5th May, Richard Lochhead was yesterday [Thursday 12] sworn into the Scottish Parliament as MSP for Moray.

The ceremony took place in the chamber of the Scottish Parliament.  Richard, who has been Moray’s MSP for ten years, was joined in Parliament by his wife Fiona, and his two boys, Angus (12) and Fraser (8).

Speaking after his affirmation, Richard Lochhead MSP said:

"It is an absolute privilege to be Moray's representative in the Scottish Parliament and I'm delighted to have taken my oath now, meaning I can get on with working hard for people in all of our communities.

"Since I was first elected as Moray's MSP ten years ago, I have always done my best to work hard for all of my constituents, whether they voted for me or not, and I will continue to do so.  I'm looking forward to getting back to work, to holding regular surgeries, meeting with local organisations, and generally doing all I can to make Moray a better place to live.

"I will continue to be accessible to people in all corners of the constituency and I would encourage anyone with any concerns or issues to get in touch."
