Spaceport Selection Hugely Disappointing for North Uist
Na h-Eileanan an Iar SNP MP Angus MacNeil (pictured) says it is ‘hugely disappointing’ that North Uist has missed out on selection as the site of the UK’s first spaceport.
Mr MacNeil was involved in discussions on the proposal with the Scottish Government and Comhairle nan Eilean Siar earlier this year.
“It is hugely disappointing that North Uist has not been chosen as the site for the UK’s first spaceport.
“Uist is an ideal site due to its location and also because of the expertise and experience already in place at the Hebrides Range.”
