Stevenson Hosts Fishing Meeting with Cabinet Secretary

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson hosted a meeting for local fishermen and those involved in the fishing industry last week.

Fisheries Secretary Richard Lochhead MSP addressed the meeting and took questions from the floor. The meeting was chaired by Stewart Stevenson and took place at Findlay’s Hotel in Fraserburgh.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson said:

“I’m very pleased that Richard Lochhead again agreed to do another of these events in my constituency. The idea originally arose out of a conversation with one of my constituents on fishing issues and we tried this out a couple of years ago and got a very good turnout, so we were keen to offer people the opportunity once again.

“I was very pleased at the turnout we got, which filled our venue to capacity. I think it is vitally important that opportunities are arranged to allow local fishermen and those involved in the industry the chance to put their views directly to the Cabinet Secretary as well as hear from him on a range of issues.

“I should like to thank everyone who attended and I hope they found the opportunity useful.”
