Paul was born in Edinburgh, and after studying Law at Dundee University, spent a short time working in Northern Ireland before settling in Glasgow with his wife and now two children. Prior to the 2017 election, he spent 9 years working as a pensions and long-term savings specialist solicitor at one of Scotland’s leading law firms and was also Chair of his local Community Council. In Parliament, Paul is the Co-chair of the All Party Parliamentary Groups on British Jews and Surgical Mesh, and Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Democratic Participation. He is an active member of a number of other APPGs including those on Surrogacy, Pensions, Equitable Life, Post Offices and Single Parents.
Paul has been a vocal campaigner on pensions issues. In October 2018, he brought a 10 Minute Rule Bill to introduce a new form of pension scheme into the UK, known as Defined Collective Contribution. This was later adopted as Government policy and a consultation into Collective Defined Contribution Schemes was launched by the DWP in November 2018. Paul has also led a debate highlighting the impact of the tapered annual allowance on senior clinical staff who were members of the NHS Pension Fund and has successfully lobbied the government to undertake a review of annual tapered allowance.
