It's emerged that a textile mill which closed with the loss of 35 jobs took 92 thousand pounds worth of tax payers' money in loans and grants.
The owners of the Reid and Taylor mill in Langholm were given the money in 2011.
The firm went into administration last month and was closed for good two weeks ago.Local MSP Joan McAlpine has written to the Scottish Goverment to find out if any of the money can be reclaimed from the company's former owners, S Kumpars group of India.
She says that it was right to support the company at the time but believes that there may be a case for the parent group to repay part of the money so that it can be re-invested in Langholm.
