Question ref. S6W-02267
Asked by: Rhoda Grant, Highlands and Islands, Scottish Labour
Date lodged: 17 August 2021
To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on progress towards delivering road equivalent tariff (RET) on the Scrabster-Stromness ferry route, and what the timeframe is for implementing this.
Current status: Answered by Graeme Dey on 13 September 2021
Officials are continuing work to explore options to introduce RET on all Northern Isles routes. This work was rightly paused in March 2020 while resources were pivoted to respond to the Covid pandemic. Work has however now resumed and we will provide updates to stakeholders and Parliament as soon as it is possible to do so.
