STAKEHOLDER MEETING ON FUTURE OF ST ROLLOX RAILWAY WORKS

This afternoon (23rd January), Transport Secretary Michael Matheson MSP, convened the second stakeholder meeting tasked with exploring how jobs operations at the St Rollox Railway Works in Springburn, Glasgow can be retained.
 

Following the meeting, constituency MSP Bob Doris said:
 
“Today, the Transport Secretary has today agreed to commission work that will establish the design requirements and costs of electrifying the 3km of track into St Rollox Railway Works.
 
“I am very pleased the Scottish Government is actively considering my suggestion that electrification can lower business costs and diversify the kind of work that could be undertaken at St Rollox.  
 
“I was also encouraged to hear that there has been some interest in the site – though I understand development of a sustainable business model will take time.
 
“With this in mind, I would like to reaffirm my call for the current owner, Gemini, to extend the 45 day consultation on redundancies.
 
“The Managing Director of Gemini has promised to consider this request, but the clock is ticking.”

Re-elect Brendan O'Hara to represent Argyll & Bute

Re-elect Brendan O'Hara for Argyll & Bute on December 12th

In this General Election, we have the perfect opportunity to start shaping a new future for Scotland as an independent nation, within the European Union.

Like every other part of Scotland, Argyll & Bute voted overwhelmingly to remain in the European Union and that is a message I have delivered time and again to the Tories in Westminster. Yet despite the economic disaster that leaving the EU will mean for Argyll & Bute, Boris Johnson’s Tories are still determined to drag us out of Europe against our will.

An SNP victory here will tell Mr. Johnson that we reject his Tory hard-Brexit plan and that we are taking control of our own future.

Only with your financial help, however, can we ensure that every person behind every door in every town, in every village and on every island across this vast constituency gets to hear that positive SNP message of a new future for Scotland.

So please, give what you can. Any donation however small or large will make a real difference and help us secure a decisive win in Argyll & Bute and return Brendan to Westminster, to continue fighting for the people of Argyll & Bute and start building that new Scotland.

Thank you
