I was delighted to visit Taylor Wimpey's Benthall Farm development in my patch in East Kilbride, to see the new homes being created and to congratulate site manager Iain Alexander on being named Scottish winner in the NHBC's Pride in the Job Awards.

The award recognises his hard work and dedication. It clearly meant a lot to receive this, and we all have our fingers crossed for him when he attends the UK ceremony next year.

I was impressed to hear about how he works his construction team and also how he helps to bring on new construction talent by supporting and guiding apprentices and younger employees.

The visit, co-hosted by the NHBC, highlighted the regeneration of the Benthall Farm site which has helped create hundreds of jobs, the different types of homes being built and the local amenities that will be available for the residents.
