S5W-22723: Colin Smyth (South Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 18 April 2019

To ask the Scottish Government for what reasons data relating to the operation of Pentland Ferries services is not available for inclusion in the annual Scottish Transport Statistics.

Answered by: Paul Wheelhouse 7 May 2019

Pentland Ferries are a wholly private, commercial unlimited company, and as such it is their decision to take on what data is made publically available. However, I am aware that Transport Scotland officials have previously requested such information from Pentland Ferries without success.
