Genetically Modified Crops

In August 2015, on the day that the SNP government confirmed[1] that it would be taking advantage of EU rules and not allowing GM crops to be grown in Scotland, Ms McGarry tweeted:

"Delighted with the Scottish Government approach to GM crops. Our food and drink industry is far too valuable to gamble with."[2]

Ayurvedic Medicine

In October 2016, Ms McGarry signed Early Day Motion 507: Celebration of First Ayurveda Day on 27 October 2016[3], which states a belief that "Ayurveda's integration into the NHS would ensure freedom of choice in healthcare for the populace; and calls on the Government to introduce an Ayurveda Chair." (Information about Ayurvedic medicine here.)
