Luke Robertson, First Solo, Unassisted and Unsupported Scot to South Pole

That the Parliament congratulates Stonehaven’s Luke Robertson on becoming the first Scot and the youngest person from the UK to complete a solo, unassisted and unsupported trek to the South Pole after a 39-day journey starting on 5 December 2015; notes that the unassisted journey involved dragging the 130kg of equipment necessary for his expedition across 730 miles of snow and ice in temperatures of about -50C and winds of 100mph, and understands that Mr Robertson was inspired to make the journey after having surgery to remove a suspected brain tumour and that his adventure has so far raised £47,000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
