Murray appointed SNP group leader

COMHAIRLE nan Eilean Siar SNP group has appointed a new group leader after Councillor Donald Manford recently decided to step down. Stornoway North councillor Gordon Murray will take over from Mr Manford who will continue as the local member for Barra, Vatersay, Eriskay and South Uist.

Councillor Manford commented: ‘After 10 years as the SNP group leader on CnES, the time is right for me to hand over the reins to someone else. Working closely with colleagues and guiding the group over the past decade has been a huge privilege. I will now concentrate on ensuring the Comhairle focuses on tackling the huge issues of disparity and opportunity facing the Southern Isles in particular.’
