Highlands and Islands MSP David Stewart was heartened to read in the P&J this morning (below) that the Tories have joined efforts to have a new medical school built in the Highlands.
He said: “I have long been calling for a new medical school to be custom-built in the Highlands and Islands. Just a few weeks ago, I was questioning Jeane Freeman, the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport, about the SNP’s plans for this vital new project. Seldom does praise come from her corner which is probably why I so clearly remember her turning round and saying I was the first MSP to battle for the new building.
“Glad to welcome the Tories to the table.”
