HMargaret Ferrier is a Scottish lawmaker who has addressed Rutherglen and Hamilton West as a MP starting around 2019, having recently stood firm on the footing from 2015 to 2017. Ferrier was first chosen for the House of Commons in the 2015 general political race as the Scottish National Party (SNP) competitor.
In the overall appointment of 2017, she was crushed by Labor Party up-and-comer Ged Killen, yet Ferrier later won it back.
Ferrier had recently run fruitlessly for the Rutherglen South ward of South Lanarkshire Council in a 2013 by-political race prior to being chosen for Westminster (following the demise of Cllr Anne Higgins).

Following Ferrier’s suspension by the SNP on October 1 2020 for disregarding COVID-19 lockdown rules, Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon requested that Ferrier surrender her parliamentary seat. Ferrier was arrested on January 4 , 2021, and accused of “blamable and foolish lead. She later entered a blameworthy request and got a local area administration sentence.
