People from Uist asked to put their questions to the First Minister

Tomorrow the Scottish Cabinet will visit the Outer Hebrides for the fourth in a series of meetings outside of Edinburgh following publication of the white paper Scotland’s Future in November last year.

In the morning the Cabinet will meet privately in Stornoway.

Then, a public meeting will be held in Stornoway Town Hall, giving members of the public an opportunity to question the First Minister and his Cabinet colleagues on the Scottish Government’s white paper and proposals for an independent Scotland.

While it is not expected many people from the southern isles of the Outer Hebrides will be able to make the journey to meet the Cabinet in Stornoway, members of the community in both Uist and Barra can still put their questions to the First Minister or his colleagues in the Cabinet through social media.

Send your questions through Twitter using the hashtag #IslesCab.

First Minister Alex Salmond’s Twitter handle is: @AlexSalmond

Details for other Scottish ministers can be found by searching on Twitter. All questions will be answered in due course.
