Fringe by the Sea event

Former North Berwick High student will be hosting this event:
The Secretary of State for Scotland David Mundell has had a rollercoaster career in politics. For twelve years, he was Scotland’s only Conservative MP. The Scottish Secretary is in Westminster trying to guide the country through an at times mind-boggling Brexit process. He joins the Spectator’s Katy Balls (North Berwick High Alumni) for a lively conversation looking back at his career highs and lows and what the future has in store for Scotland at a time of seismic change.
