MSP working to secure Hawick Knitwear jobs

John Lamont, MSP for Ettrick, Roxburgh and Berwickshire, has said he's working as hard as he can to secure jobs, following the decision to place Hawick Knitwear into administration:

We'd hoped that we'd been through the worst of the job losses. Knitwear and textiles in the Borders has faced some tough times but we'd hoped that things would be a bit more stable.

But clearly the world economy is still not as strong as it once was and we face tough times, and clearly the management here have had a very tough decision to make and we're now working as hard as we can to try and secure the future of these jobs."
