Commenting on the latest SNP fiasco to blight the Highlands, Scottish Conservative Business Spokesman and Highlands and Islands MSP Jamie Halcro Johnston said:
“It is staggering that communities across the Highlands and Islands could end up waiting even longer before they gain access to decent broadband. It’s shameful that the SNP Government is landing our region with yet another infrastructure procurement fiasco."
“Local communities across the region, particularly those on some of our islands, are already being hit by Edinburgh’s total mismanagement of our ferry network and new vessel procurement which has resulted in a worsening ferries crisis. This is simply not good enough and the Highlands and Islands deserves better."
“It’s time that Nicola Sturgeon and her ministers recognised that these delays mean lost investment and lost jobs, something which the Highlands and Islands simply cannot afford.”
