MSP welcomes cabinet visit

Monday 29th October, 2015


Commenting on the Scottish Government Cabinet visit planned for November 23rd Greenock and Inverclyde MSP Duncan McNeil said:

“I welcome this visit. It will provide a great opportunity for Ministers across the different portfolios to engage with the local community and address a number of issues of real importance to Inverclyde.”

“We need assurances from Shona Robison about the future of Inverclyde Royal and how she will work to address the significant delays to the new Greenock Health Centre and the replacement for the elderly care unit at Ravenscraig Hospital.”

“It’s important that Michael Matheson meets with local representatives regarding the future of the prison site and explain what action he will take to reduce the 75% rise in violent crime in the area.”

“And I hope John Swinney will spell out exactly how he will work with local agencies to extend the quayside at the Ocean Terminal so that we can increase the number of cruise liners coming into Inverclyde and boost the local economy.”
