Moray MSP to host Brexit meeting
MORAY'S MSP will host a public meeting on Brexit with the Scottish Government’s cabinet secretary for government relations and constitutional affairs.
Members of the public are invited to attend the meeting on Monday, which will look at what Brexit means for Moray. There will be an opportunity to put questions to the Michael Russell MSP, who has led on Brexit discussions for the Scottish Government.
The meeting will be held in St Giles Church, High Street, at 6.30pm.
Mr Lochhead is encouraging local residents and business representatives to attend the meeting to find out more about what leaving the EU could mean for the local economy and people who live in Moray.
Speaking ahead of the meeting, Mr Lochhead said: "For the last two years, politics has been dominated by Brexit with the chaos and uncertainty making it difficult for local businesses to plan ahead.
“In amongst all that uncertainty, one thing that has been abundantly clear is that leaving the European Union will cause real damage to our local economy, particularly given that many of our industries are export focussed, and a number of Moray businesses rely on EU migrants for their workforce.
“From conversations I’ve had it is clear that the public and local businesses have a long list of questions around what Brexit means for communities in Moray."
