ALLAN WELCOMES PLAN FOR GREATER ISLAND AUTONOMY

 

Na h-Eileanan an Iar SNP MSP, Alasdair Allan, has welcomed the plan for greater autonomy for Scotland’s island communities as announced by First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, at the Convention of the Highlands and Islands yesterday. More detail on the plans will be published later this summer.

 

Alasdair Allan commented:

 

“These plans are a welcome move by the Scottish Government in order to help strengthen our island communities. Providing more autonomy to these communities and allowing more of the day to day decisions about local services to be made by the people who live and work in these areas can only be a good thing for the future prosperity of Scotland’s islands.

 

“The Scottish Government clearly understands the unique nature and importance of Scotland’s island communities Finally real powers will be delivered by the SNP, following generations of failed promises by other parties.”
