First Minister to visit isles on Monday
Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is to make a flying visit to Shetland next week, following in the footsteps of agriculture minister Richard Lochhead who will be in the isles tomorrow.
Ms Sturgeon will arrive on Monday and will open the SNP campaign hub in Lerwick at 6.30pm, along with local candidate Danus Skene.
She will then speak and take questions an hour later at a public meeting in Shetland Museum, chaired by Robbie McGregor from the local SNP branch.
Before that Mr Lochhead, who has faced fierce criticism recently over the government’s Less Favoured Areas (LFA) payments delay, will visit the abbatoir in Lerwick tomorrow afternoon.
