FERRY CAMPAIGNERS IN HOLYROOD

DUNOON ferry campaigners headed to the capital yesterday (Thursday) to make their voices heard in the Scottish Parliament – and they were welcomed by first minister Nicola Sturgeon.

 

 

Highlands regional MSP David Stewart asked Ms Sturgeon during First Minister’s Questions about the progress of the tender for the Dunoon Gourock town centre route. She welcomed the Dunoon delegation, saying she knew some of them well because she was previously chair of the ferry steering group, before saying she was unable to discuss the issue as the tender is live.

Later, however, the Dunoon group met with a cross-party group of Highlands MSPs – Mr Stewart (Labour), Maree Todd (SNP) and Donald Cameron (Conservative). The MSPs agreed to write collectively to transport minister Humza Yousaf to present the group’s concerns about harbour charges and the need for a vehicle service to go in to Dunoon town centre.

 

The Dunoon delegation made good time on the bus journey back from Edinburgh to Gourock – but were then delayed because the ferry was off…

 

More in next Friday’s Standard.
