First Minister Alex Salmond said, “For the past five years, the Scottish Government has taken its summer cabinet programme to every corner of Scotland, with meetings in such diverse locations as Renfrew, Melrose, Dundee and Skye.
“The summer recess gives us an incredibly important opportunity to get out and meet people from a wide range of backgrounds and communities and hear their views on a range of issues. I know all of the cabinet are looking forward to another exciting and valuable round of visits during this year’s programme.
“This year we will be visiting Shetland, Hawick, Campbeltown and Fraserburgh where we will be talking and listening to local people in every corner of the country about the things that matter to them.
“I am determined that we continue to work with the people of Scotland to give them the stronger economy, fairer society and brighter future we all deserve. These summer cabinets are an important part of helping to build that future and I hope as many people as possible will join us during this exciting programme.”
