My officials continue to engage with the Islands partners and most recently met with the Islands Deal Programme Director on 2 August and 4 September to discuss next steps.

Officials also spoke with the Leader of Orkney Islands Council on 27 August.

We expect to receive the latest suite of proposals from the Islands partners later this month.
