Members' Business: Establishment of the Scottish Stone Group

February 22, 2018 12:45

 

That the Parliament welcomes the establishment of the Scottish Stone Group, which has been set up to raise awareness of the country's indigenous stone sector and promote an important environmentally-sustainable material, by what it considers some of Scotland’s leading stone companies, Denfind Stone of Angus, Hutton Stone of the Borders and Tradstocks of Stirlingshire; notes that, while approximately 85% of stone used in Scotland is currently imported, the group aims to promote the use of indigenous natural stone and grow the industry, creating more jobs and apprenticeships, and wishes it success in realising these ambitions.
