Debates and questions

S5W-30933: Finlay Carson (Galloway and West Dumfries)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 27 July 2020

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answers to questions S5W-29857 and 30290 by Fiona Hyslop on 22 and 29 June 2020 respectively, what direct support it is providing to prevent the job losses at National Trust for Scotland properties in the Galloway and West Dumfries constituency.

Answered by: Fiona Hyslop 12 August 2020

As the member is aware from the answers to questions S5W-30290 and S5W-29857, the Scottish Government is still actively engaged in pursuing the available options to deliver the best support that we can for the future of the National Trust for Scotland (NTS) aiming wherever possible to protect jobs and re-open sites.

Until the discussions between the team I formed from across Scottish Government and Scottish Enterprise, and the NTS have reached a conclusion, I am unable to confirm details of any specific support for any specific sites.
