Statement from the Secretary of State on the latest situation at the Grangemouth plant.

Energy Secretary Edward Davey said:

“Grangemouth is an important part of the Scottish economy, with industry, jobs and people’s livelihoods at stake. I have worked hard with both sides to urge them to continue talking and find a way that secures a long-term future for Grangemouth.

“Motorists should be assured that the Grangemouth shut down will not affect Scotland’s petrol and diesel supplies. We have been working closely with the fuel industry and Scottish Government to ensure robust contingency measures are in place.”
