Responding to the Scottish Government’s new strategic framework, Shetland’s MSP Beatrice Wishart commented:
“It has been an extremely difficult year, with constant upheaval in every quarter. People are craving certainty, stability, and hope.
"We need a plan that can withstand what the virus throws at us, and a plan that can stand the test of time. The support for individuals and businesses needs to be sure and defined. There also needs to be meaningful engagement with the communities that will be affected.
“In that context, the framework published by the Scottish Government must now be given full and proper consideration. I will do everything I can to make sure that the views and needs of Shetlanders are properly incorporated into these plans. If people have concerns about what has been put forward, I would urge them to get in touch.”
