Gregg McClymont

I grew up in Kildrum, Cumbernauld and went to Cumbernauld High School between 1988-1993.

I then took degrees in History at the Universities of Glasgow, Pennsylvania and Oxford.

I benefited from several scholarships including the Thouron scholarship which paid for me to live and study history at the University of Pennsylvania.

I returned to the UK in 1999 and undertook a PhD in history at Oxford University.

I taught history at St Hugh's College Oxford where I was a Fellow until elected as MP for Cumbernauld, Kilsyth and Kirkintilloch East in May 2010.

A year later I was moved to the Labour front bench where I served as an assistant whip before becoming Shadow Pensions Minister in October 2011.
