South of Scotland Enterprise recently acquired land at Chapelcross, near Annan, and there has been a strong expression of interest from ReBlade—a Scotland-based company that recycles and repurposes wind turbines, which normally go to landfill. The project is a welcome opportunity to create many new local jobs and an opportunity for the environment, and it seems a natural fit with the longer-term plans to establish a green energy park on the wider site. Will the Scottish Government get behind the plans and look to see what additional support can be offered through its agencies to get the project over the line?

I say to Oliver Mundell that the Cabinet Secretary for Wellbeing Economy, Fair Work and Energy will be happy to meet him to discuss that in more detail. We will make sure that that is arranged as soon as possible.
