Jenny Marra  : I'm delighted that Alex Salmond has listened to Labour's campaign on the Tay Tax and has reduced the Dundee fares.

2 April 2013

I'm delighted that Alex Salmond has listened to Labour's campaign on the Tay Tax and has reduced the Dundee fares.

The new cheaper fares will be very welcome news for Dundee commuters. Dundee businesses will also welcome the cheaper fares as this could drive more visitors into the City.

With the V&A development, cheaper fares into Dundee are absolutely crucial to ensure we attract as many visitors as possible to make it a success.

But for potential employers in the city, everything that makes Dundee more accessible and more attractive to bring in business is essential.

I have been campaigning on the Tay tax since July last year. It is just one of the many things that we have to get right to attract more employers to Dundee.

I'm glad Alex Salmond has listened and I look forward to the Scottish Government cementing its commitment to Dundee when the decision on the National Football Academy is made later this week.
