Ministers and officials have had no meetings about west coast ferry services with P&O since 1 November 2016.

Ministers met representatives of Associated British Ports on 13 December regarding ABP’s offer to use Troon as the port for the Arran/Kintyre services. Officials also attended that meeting and had one additional meeting with ABP on the same subject on 19 January 2017.
