Responding to the news a rail link for Glasgow has been scrapped, Johann Lamont MSP said:
“It is unforgivable that the SNP has once again robbed Glasgow of its own dedicated airport rail link.
“Last week the Scottish government voted with Labour to progress with a rail project, Ministers now owe Parliament and the people of Glasgow an apology.
“I call on the Transport Secretary to make an urgent statement to parliament and take questions from MSPs who are rightly angry that a project with such clear and significant economy benefits for our city has been written off.
“It is entirely improper for any government to ignore the stated position of our national parliament.
“It cannot be right that the will of parliament can be simply ignored. It cannot be right that our international airport has been denied a rail link.”
