Employees ‘being paid’ to move house, claims councillor
A major employer is offering thousands of pounds to North Isles residents in a bid to lure them to the Mainland, according to a councillor.
North Isles member Alec Priest, of Yell, made the claim in a public meeting in Lerwick Town Hall this morning (Thursday), but would not be drawn on the name of the employer.
Mr Priest said: “They [residents] are being paid to leave the isles and I’m almost losing sleep over that, to be honest.”
