Danny Alexander MP - Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch & Strathspey has said to BSCG:

"Climate change is the biggest long-term challenge that we face. Our environment is the single greatest economic asset we have in the Highlands - its value goes far beyond monetary terms - and it must be cherished and protected."

"At this election, Liberal Democrats recognise both the threat that comes from global climate change and the opportunities that exist for the Highlands in green energy by committing to rebuild a fairer and more sustainable economy after Labour's recession. In doing that, we can add a resurgence in Highland manufacturing jobs at places like Nigg and Ardersier to the world-leading research and development which already takes place locally in marine renewable energy technologies."

Note: On Friday April 16th BSCG is holding a General Election Hustings.
