To date CFPA Chairman Jimmy Gray has failed to confirm or deny that as Chairman of the Board and Highland Councillor for the Crown Ward, Inverness, he was aware of the existence of NDL. Was he kept in the dark, or was he hoping to keep the rest of us living on the shores of the firth ‘in the dark?’ Over to you Jimmy.

On the other hand Cllr Alan Torrance had no hesitation in confirming by e-mail that, as a Member of the CFPA Board, he was aware of the company set up by fellow CFPA Board, Mike Kydd. Hopefully Cllr Torrance intended to inform the good folk of Tain before plans to decommission ‘Neuks’ at Nigg went too far.
