John Swinney MSP, the Scottish Government’s cabinet secretary for finance and sustainable growth, will be the key speaker at an Argyll and Bute Population Summit next month.

The event, to be held at the Queen’s Hall in Dunoon on Friday, May 9, will be told that turning round Argyll and Bute’s population decline is key to building the economy of the area.

The summit is being held in response to statistics from the most recent UK census, which showed a fall of 3.4 per cent - more than 3,000 people - in the population of Argyll and Bute between 2001 and 2011.
