At present it is snowing heavily in Scotland and the countryside is white. I have been following your campaign along with the hundreds of readers e mails on the internet. Many Scots used to enjoy the winter sun in Majorca. It is unfortunate that they can no longer get there in the winter months due to the lack of flights. The irony of this situation is that the Scottish Government own Prestwick airport which is situated about 15 miles west of Glasgow and they are desperate to build up airport traffic to make it viable. In 2013 the Scottish Government paid just £1 to buy the debt ridden Prestwick airport from Infratil. The Scottish Government have committed a £25.2 million loan fund to the airport. My local member of the Scottish Parliament is Keith Brown. When the airport was purchased in 2013 he was the Transport Minister. He has now been promoted to Cabinet Secretary for Infrastructure, Investment and Cities as from December 2014 when Nicola Sturgeon took over as First Minister.
I am a constituent of Keith Brown and I intend to write to him and present him with copies of the campaign that you have been running in the Majorca Daily Bulletin and request a meeting with him as a constituent. Naturally I will write to the Bulletin detailing the outcome of my proposed meeting with Keith Brown.
