Today I put this motion to the Scottish Parliament -
Motion Number: S5M-03290
Lodged By: Gail Ross
Date Lodged: 06/01/2017
Title: Support for Kishorn Yard
That the Parliament welcomes a £500,000 investment by Kishorn Port Ltd to the Kishorn Yard in Wester Ross to move forward plans to restore the fabrication yard, which once employed around 3,000 people, considers that the facility is ideally placed to become a base for North Sea oil rig decommissioning; notes the involvement of Highlands and Islands Enterprise, and further welcomes the move by the marine engineering company, Harris Pye, to test the gates on the dry dock to check that they are still working.
