Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 27 September 2016

To ask the Scottish Government how much it will cost to repair of the damage to the pontoons at Lochmaddy harbour following the MV Hebrides running aground on 25 September 2016, and where the funding for this will be sourced.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 18 October 2016

The costs to repair the damage to the pontoons at Lochmaddy harbour are a matter for discussion between the harbour operator and CalMac Ferries Limited (CFL). No indicative costs are as yet known, however any such funding for repair will likely be an insurance matter for CFL.
