MSP reiterated his call for the Scottish Executive to make far more
funding available to Scottish Water to relieve the problem of development

He continued..."Last week I found out in the Rural and Environment Committee that there is a £205 million projected under spend in Scottish Water this financial year. That is money which could begin to alleviate some of the development constraints in our rural water treatment and sewage plants."
He continued..."Where possible the capacity of both reservoirs and sewerage treatment systems should be expanded where there is a desire for people to live, this is one of the important pieces of the jigsaw that will go a long way to regenerating our rural communities be they located in Orkney, the Far North or in rural Perthshire."
