Dumfries and Galloway MP Russell Brown warned Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon not to come to Stranraer "empty handed".
Mr Brown wrote to Ms Sturgeon asking her to use the visit to announce significant Scottish Government investment, to help boost the regeneration of the town.
"It has taken Nicola Sturgeon seven months to visit Stranraer, so we can only hope that when she does come to the town she isn't empty handed. More than ever Stranraer needs a major injection of Government funding to really kick start the regeneration of the town.
"She could go a long way to showing a commitment to Stranraer by re-instating the £8 million Scottish Enterprise originally promised for regeneration but failed to deliver on".
