Speaking following the historic election Angus said;
"I would like to thank the electorate of Falkirk East for their resounding vote of confidence in me, the SNP Government and Alex Salmond as First Minister at the Scottish Parliament election last week.
As the new MSP for Falkirk East I will work hard to build on that vote of confidence by working with all local groups and individuals who have the best interests of Falkirk district at heart.
The unambiguous endorsement of the Scottish Government at this election lays the foundation for decisive action on the economy and tackling alcohol abuse.
We shall continue to work with other parties in Parliament to ensure that our decisions reflect the widest possible range of views, and lessons learned as a minority Government will continue to influence how we conduct ourselves now we have an overall majority.
Over the next few weeks I will be setting up my constituency office in Grangemouth however if you require to contact me with an enquiry in the meantime please phone my parliamentary office on 0131 348 5487, e-mail
