£32m EU fund­ing

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

“It is too early to know ex­actly what the im­pact of the UK’s de­par­ture from the EU will be for South La­nark­shire. We do not yet know the timetable for de­par­ture, never mind what ar­range­ments might be put in place within the UK to re­place pre­vi­ous sources of EU fund­ing.

“It is likely to be some time be­fore we have clar­ity on a way for­ward. In the mean­time the coun­cil will con­tinue to work within the cur­rent ar­range­ments in the best in­ter­ests of South La­nark­shire, while de­vel­op­ing plans for any changes in the fu­ture.”

Clyde Gate­way also said it was too early to see if Brexit would dis­cour­age new busi­nesses from mov­ing into Ruther­glen.

Ruther­glen busi­ness owner Ken­neth Thom, d i rec­tor of Creat e Bath­room and Kitchen Stu­dios, was dis­ap­pointed with the re­sult but called on the coun­try to ac­cept the re­sult.
