S5W-06609: Elaine Smith (Central Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 26 January 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what recent assessment it has made of the viability of restoring passenger services on the Rosyth to Zeebrugge ferry route.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 8 February 2017

Any passenger service would have to operate on a commercially viable basis and this would be a matter for any prospective ferry operator to consider.

While Scottish Government encourages ferry operators to keep the option of introducing a passenger service under review, including DFDS, there are no firm commitments regarding a service at the present time.
