Scotland's green industries need investment

At COP26, the Prime Minister ramped up the rhetoric to cover the UK government’s drumbeat of failure in delivering Scotland’s green investment.

  • The UK’s most advanced carbon capture proposal shelved

  • Grid connection punishes Scotland’s renewable energy projects

  • Tidal power is held up as the Prime Minister dithers

And, having squandered £350 billion of North Sea oil revenues, I'm deeply concerned this UK government will squander Scotland’s vast renewable energy, in just the same way.

I must say that the response I got at BEIS questions didn't reassure me.
