Responding to reports that Prestwick Airport has been put up for sale by the Scottish Government, Scottish Liberal Democrat transport spokesperson Mike Rumbles MSP said:
"The purchase of Prestwick has been an absolute disaster for the Scottish Government. It has lost taxpayer’s money hand over fist.
“The Government have put forward a series over over-optimistic proposals for Prestwick and then failed to deliver.
“I hope that the site can be put to good use by its new owner and that as much taxpayer’s money as possible can be recouped by this sale.”
