The Prime Minister, Theresa May, visited East Lothian this week as part of the General Election campaign, emphasising that only the Scottish Conservatives can lead the fightback against the SNP.
In a visit to Andrew Black Haulage in Drem she was given a tour of the business and met with the owner and his family, discussing the challenges facing the haulage industry, and the shift towards more environmentally friendly vehicles.
She was accompanied on the visit by Scottish Conservative candidate Sheila Low, who said that the Prime Minister’s visit showed that the party are serious about beating the SNP here in East Lothian.
Speaking after the visit Sheila Low said:
“It was an honour to have the Prime Minister visit East Lothian and have her take time out of her campaign to visit one of our local businesses.
“Andrew Black Haulage are a hugely successful operation, and it was great for them to be able to speak to Theresa about their business and some of the challenges they are facing.
“The fact that the Prime Minister was visiting East Lothian proves that we are serious about winning the election here in June.
“With Jeremy Corbyn saying he is ‘absolutely fine’ with another referendum, it’s clear that only the Scottish Conservatives are capable of standing up to the SNP at this election.”
