Date lodged: 23 April 2019

To ask the Scottish Government what recent discussions it has had with Edinburgh Woollen Mill and stakeholders in the area regarding the company's Langholm site.

Answered by: Jamie Hepburn 2 May 2019

The then-Minister for Business, Innovation & Energy contacted Edinburgh Woollen Mill immediately following the announcement of their move from Langholm to Carlisle to see what support the Scottish Government and our agencies could offer. Scottish Government officials subsequently met Edinburgh Woollen Mill in Langholm, and more recently have also been in touch with Dumfries & Galloway Council.
