Commenting on reports Michelin still intends to close its Dundee factory, Scottish Labour leader Richard Leonard MSP said:

"The news tyre manufacturing at Michelin in Dundee could still cease is deeply troubling and a major blow for the workforce, their families and the wider community.

"The loss of more than 800 much-needed skilled jobs would be devastating to the city and our economy.

"It is now essential that the SNP government fights hard to deliver new work at the Baldovie plant to protect jobs and skills.

"This must include stepping up its work with trade unions and local authorities in order secure a viable future for the workforce.

"Scottish Labour is ready to provide constructive advice and support to ensure we protect these jobs and skills in Dundee."
