Hawick textile summit

Members of the textile industry have been invited to a summit organised by the Scottish Government.

The event will be chaired by Finance Minister John Swinney at Peter Scott Knitwear.

"I am keen to understand better the challenges facing your sector and to identify areas where the Scottish Government and its key agencies can work with you to support continued and sustainable growth.

"Textile industry bosses say they are looking for more support from the Scottish Government for apprenticeships and trainee schemes."
