As Donald John quite rightly says, "The first minister is to be commended for announcing the removal of charges on those who use the Tay and Forth bridges and it makes sense to extend that wisdom to the removal of ferry fares. This would be the biggest boost ever to the economy of the Western Isles and would easily repay the costs within a short time."
This is exactly the kind of lateral thinking the community needs, and I have no doubt that the entire Council will support this. I look forward to our MP and MSP supporting this campaign too. Good work Mr MacSween.
