Rennie: Fresh revelations on ferries show SNP “amateurism”


Following the revelation by the First Minister that the Deputy First Minister was involved in the ferries contract, that ministers ignored legal warnings and that multi-million pound contracts are routinely signed off by one line emails, Scottish Liberal Democrat economy spokesperson Willie Rennie MSP said:

“At least the amateurism of the SNP has enabled us to establish that ministers were advised that the ferries contract was potentially unlawful.

“That multi-million pound contracts are routinely signed off by one line emails even when there is a legal risk reveals a causal disregard for the public purse and the jobs and livelihoods of thousands of people.

“This confirmation now makes it inevitable that there must be a public inquiry into this shocking waste of public funds and failure to deliver two lifeline ferries.”
