Peter Peacock MSP
Response to UK Government announcement on the delivery of Broadband
8 December 2010
Responding to the UK Government's announcement on Broadband delivery today, Highlands and Islands Labour MSP Peter Peacock said:
"This is welcome news in so far as it goes.
"The sum of money available is disappointing as it is much less than was planned by the last government.
"The UK Government needs to prioritise the Highlands and Islands as this is where market failure is most marked.
"Everyone needs to focus on ensuring more of this money comes to this region, and I will be asking the Scottish Government to make sure they have a strategy for achieving that, as this is something they don't have at present."
