David Mundell is the Member of Parliament for Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale, after winning re-election in the May 2015 General Election.
"It has been a very busy time since I was re-elected in May last year in the Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale constituency.
"It is a privilege to serve this constituency which is one of the largest in the whole of the House of Commons which brings with a whole host of challenges for rural communities.
"Those communities are always my top priority and ever since being elected in 2005, I have aimed to make myself as accessible as possible to all my constituents and help them on any issue,
"I continue to lobby on long-standing rural issues at the heart of Government, in particular improving access to public transport and speeding up the roll out of better broadband coverage.
"There are of course many other issues affecting my constituency including creating opportunities for job creation, particularly for our young people and ensuring local services remain at the heart of the community."
