Scottish Conservative European Parliamentary candidate Dr Ian Duncan visited Dumfries and Galloway on Monday with Galloway and West Dumfries MSP Alex Fergusson. At the end of his visit Dr Duncan said: “This has been a most informative visit. With my background in fisheries, I was pleased to visit West Coast Sea Products in Kirkcudbright to listen to local concerns. Similarly, the meeting with the National Farmers Union of Scotland delegation was extremely useful. The influence of the CAP on Scottish Agriculture is immense and I have great sympathy with the concerns over the current reform of CAP that were highlighted to me. Local Councillors made me very aware of the many and varied challenges that this Region faces, not least in the west with the pressing need for investment in, and the redevelopment of, the waterfront in Stranraer. I have learned a great deal today and look forward to coming back as soon as possible.”

Galloway and West Dumfries MSP Alex Fergusson added:-

“It was a pleasure to have Ian Duncan in Dumfries and Galloway for the day. He is an excellent listener and a quick learner, and he has a real appreciation for the issues that face us here in the south west. I very much hope he will be elected to the European Parliament, as I have no doubt that he would be a good friend of Dumfries and Galloway in that capacity.”
