Orkney and Shetland MP, Alistair Carmichael, has welcomed today’s announcement that the UK government will approve the creation of a Shetland spaceport.
Mr Carmichael said:
“This is good news for Unst, for Shetland and for the UK space industry. After a challenging year the prospect of new, high-quality jobs in the isles has to be welcomed and is a confirmation of the faith that those behind Shetland Spaceport have put in its location. I hope it will be just the first of many such developments.”
