As part of Boris Johnson’s “leveling” program, Holyrood Minister Evan McKee has warned that he and Wales’ ministers should clarify whether special economic zones, which offer tax breaks and lower tariffs, should fund independent ports.
The Scottish and Welsh governments fear that they will be harmed at this point, compared to the funding available for support ports in England.
