Following a telephone call with the Scottish Government’s Minister for Business, Innovation and Energy, Clare Haughey MSP said:
“Yesterday’s announcement was devastating for Cambuslang and nearby communities.
“This afternoon, I spoke with Paul Wheelhouse MSP, the Scottish Government’s Minister for Business, Innovation and Energy.
“From this conversation, I have secured an early meeting with him, and other relevant stakeholders, to discuss the way forward. The Scottish Government share my desire to ensure those who are being made redundant find suitable new work quickly, as well as supporting the local communities and businesses who will be impacted on by 2 Sisters decision.
“I also agreed with the Minister that I will reach out to other local companies who may be negatively affected by this closure, and I will work with the Scottish Government to support them.
“The workers and community are going through an incredibly difficult time at the moment, and I will continue to assist them in any way I can.”
