THE Scottish government is facing criticism for failing to commit to a just transition plan for an ageing fossil fuel plant, despite the First Minister agreeing to “look at all options” last year.
SNP ministers have been accused of a lack of urgency over operations at Mossmorran in Fife ahead of a debate of the government’s climate change plan.
In a letter to Green MSP Mark Ruskell, Environment Secretary Roseanna Cunningham failed to commit to a meeting to discuss the future of the plant, despite promises last year.
The Greens say that more detail is needed in current plans to meet Scotland’s climate goals.
Mr Ruskell said: “As Scotland’s third-biggest polluter, we can’t just keep kicking the issue of Mossmorran into the long grass.
“To do so would be a betrayal of our commitment to tackling climate change and a betrayal of the workforce, who need to be supported now into the clean, green industries of the future.”
