Alan Reid, Liberal Democrat candidate for Argyll & Bute, welcomed yesterday's Scottish Government announcement of a grant towards investment in the Campbeltown Creamery. As MP, Alan Reid had written to Scottish Rural Affairs Minister Richard Lochhead strongly supporting a grant towards investment in the creamery.
Following the announcement, Mr Reid said,
"I am very pleased at this announcement. The dairy industry is vitally important to the Kintyre economy. Dairy farmers have been through a tough time recently and this announcement will help to secure their future, that of the creamery and the many other local jobs which depend on the dairy industry."
