MP wants views on mobile phone blackspots

MORAY MP Angus Robertson is calling on his constituents to supply information on known mobile phone blackspots.

Mr Robertson has met with Joe Goulcher, the community affairs manager at mobile phone providers EE, to discuss the public’s concerns over the number of areas in Moray where they are unable to obtain even a basic mobile signal.

The MP highlighted that there appeared to be an inordinate number of such blackspots, in particular along the A96 corridor.

Now Mr Robertson is hoping to recruit constituents to help in drawing-up a detailed map of the area that will show the true extent of the problem.

The Moray MP said: "Increasingly, I am hearing from constituents who say that they are all too often frustrated when attempting to make mobile phone calls in Moray because of either very poor or non-existent signals.

"I greatly appreciate the time EE has taken to discuss these issues and it is clear that further evidence is required on just what parts of Moray are lacking in mobile phone provision.

"That is why I’m now asking any constituents who are constantly experiencing difficulties in obtaining a mobile phone signal to contact my constituency office with details.

"This will allow us to draw up a detailed map of poor mobile coverage areas in Moray. We can then provide this evidence to the mobile telephone operators and seek to find ways of resolving the issue."

Anyone with information is asked to write in details to the Moray Parliamentary Office, 9 Wards Road, Elgin IV30 1NL.
