To ask the Scottish Government, in light of media reports in January 2018, what information it has regarding whether P&O is considering introducing a ferry service between Scotland and Scandinavia.
Answered by: Humza Yousaf 8 May 2018
The Scottish Government would welcome new ferry routes from Scotland to the Continent including a service to Scandinavia, although this would have to operate on a commercially viable basis. P&O has indicated that on the basis of a review of the commercial and financial challenges around such a route, this is not something they are pursuing at this time.
