§ Mr. Peter Duncan
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what plans she has to provide further financial support for ferry services between(a) Campbell town and Ballycastle and (b) Rosyth and Zeebrugge. 918W
§ Mrs. Liddell
Decisions on financial support for the Campbeltown to Ballycastle ferry service are a matter for the Scottish Executive. I have no plans to provide financial support for the Rosyth-Zeebrugge ferry service. The Scottish Executive provided funding by means of a Freight Facilities Grant to the port operator, Forth Ports plc, for improvements to the port infrastructure at Rosyth.
