To ask the Scottish Government what the outcome is of the Clyde and Hebrides ferry services tender.

Answered by: Derek Mackay 19 May 2016

Following an independently verified “fair, open and transparent” tender, I can today confirm that the “preferred bidder” to operate the Clyde and Hebrides ferry services and Harbour Operating Agreements is CalMac Ferries Ltd. The new contract starts on 1 October 2016 for eight years.
