Responding to the latest developments at BiFab, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:
“I’m not sure that the Economy Minister understands the anger and frustration at BiFab.
“Only 21 days ago Keith Brown proclaimed it a very good day for employees at BiFab. He said DF Barnes had no intention of shedding further staff.
“The Minister needs to explain why he said that and consider whether he was misled by DF Barnes. The relationship between the Scottish Government and DF Barnes must have been put under great strain following these unexpected job losses.”
