I will oversee the review which will be conducted by officials with the relevant expertise from across Transport Scotland and Scottish Government. In my statement to Parliament I made clear that I am fully committed to keeping everyone informed about the purpose and progress of the review, including ferry users, local authorities, local communities, ferry operators, trade unions and members of Parliament.
