He has also tasked by party leader Ruth Davidson to lead on policy development for
the Scottish Conservatives ahead of the next Scottish Parliamentary elections.
The MSP said he is keen to ensure the voices of the crofting community are heard.
Mr Cameron said: “For too long crofting has not been at the forefront of rural and
agricultural policymaking and I remain concerned that current crofting law is designed
to suit lawyers and not crofters.
“I intend to hold more meetings like this across the Western Isles and the wider
Highlands and Islands region.
“Crofting is a vital component of our agricultural economy and I will continue to
play my part in promoting it at Holyrood.”
Crofters voice concerns to MSP
16 August 2017
Crofters have raised challenges they face to Scottish Conservative MSP Donald Cameron.
Ongoing issues relating to the Scottish Government's mishandling of farm subsidies,
geese damage to grazing, deer numbers and Lyme disease were discussed with the politician
at a forum in North Uist this week.
The aim of the meeting was to give Western Isles crofters the opportunity to meet
with Mr Cameron and put their concerns to him directly.
Prior to entering parliament, Mr Cameron was an advocate specialising in crofting
and agricultural law. He currently sits on the crofting cross party group.
