To ask the Scottish Government what impact the review into the procurement of Scottish ferry services that it announced on 2 February 2017 will have on the Harbour Operating Agreement between the operator and infrastructure owner on the existing contract for Clyde and Hebrides ferry services.

We cannot pre-judge the outcome of the review. We will ensure that harbour facilities are made available to allow us to meet our number one priority to continue to deliver efficient, safe and reliable ferry services to our island and remote rural communities.
