Sir, – I am disappointed at the suggestions, made by senior Labour Party figures in your article headlined ‘Calls for subsea cable work to start’ (Gazette 21/09/17), that the UK Government is wavering from the position laid out in our manifesto at the recent General Election in relation to island wind projects.

Letter - Stringent means testing needed

Sir, - While in Stornoway for the Festival we had a bit of time to mull over Aonghas Eoghainn’s thought-provoking correspondence from a recent edition of the local newspaper and I, like most hard-working taxpayers, appreciate where he is coming from as he eloquently articulated his thoughts appertaining to means testing.

Crofting Bill Passed

Yet another nail in the crofting coffin - pay £1,000 to be on yet another register, or be fined £1,000 - isn't that called extortion?
