Ferry Services

Parliamentary Question February 2017

David Stewart (Highlands and Islands) (Scottish Labour):

To ask the Scottish Government, further to its statement on Scotland’s ferry services on 2 February 2017, what impacts the review of ferry service procurement will have on its 2012 Ferries Plan, which covers the period to 2022.

Humza Yousaf: The Ferries Plan 2013-2022 contained proposals on vessel investment and replacement, pier and harbours upgrades, new and improved ferry services and timetables and fares reductions. The policy review of ferry service procurement is unlikely to have an impact on the delivery of these proposals. Scottish Parliament
