The continued exclusion of Orkney from the Road Equivalent Tariff (RET) scheme is an issue that causes many locals great frustration. The Firth of Clyde islands and Inner Hebrides are cut by 44%for passengers and 55% for cars, but not for Orkney.
Local people in Orkney have reacted angrily to SNP ministers excluding the Northern Isles from help to bring down the cost of lifeline ferry fares back in April this year.
