Sir Menzies Campbell was in Dundee today, firstly to visit the Overgate Centre and hear the good news that the Centre is thriving despite the current economic situation – and secondly to support my colleague Chris Hall at the Maryfield Ward by-election.
Dundee was rather full of politicians today, starting with the media conference with John Swinney MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Finance & Sustainable Growth, at Discovery Point – to announce the further Scottish Enterprise Dundee Waterfront Funding. I attended this (as City Council Planning & Transport Convener) and am delighted at this additional funding for Dundee.
The Labour Conference is also in Dundee so the city wasn’t exactly short of political visits! Anyway, here’s a couple of photos from Ming’s visit (below) :
