Tony said:

I am honoured that the Institute has recognised my professional contribution in this way and would like to thank my colleagues for all their support and also East Lothian Council which supports the work we do in communities across the county.

Tony has been the Council’s Trading Standards Manager and Chief Inspector of Weights and Measures since 2001. He is an advocate for consumer rights and trading standards. Tony has been greatly supported in his work by his colleagues in the Trading Standards Team and East Lothian Council. He has held a number of key posts within trading standards in Scotland and the UK including: Secretary of the Society of Chief Officers of Trading Standards in Scotland, Chairman of the Scottish Branch of the Trading Standards Institute (TSI), COSLA advisor, TSI Council member and visiting lecturer on TS matters to Queen Margaret University.

The Trading Standards Institute formally conferred the Fellowship at its annual conference in June in Manchester.
