In response to his letter of February 22 to Transport Minister Michael Matheson it was stated that there were no immediate plans to charter an additional vessel but that the matter would be kept under review.

Mr MacNeil said: “It is time for Transport Scotland to think again and to trial MV Pentalina in the ports and crossings on the West Coast. We know there are huge pressures on the ferries on the West Coast given the debacle around the yard on the Clyde. Meantime, the most pressing issue is to get the MV Pentalina trialled on the West Coast and the sooner this happens the better.”
