‘Crisis in the Scottish press’ report to be unveiled on Monday

GLENROTHES has been chosen as the location for the launch of a Wesminster report on the state of the Scottish newspaper industry.

The report follows an enqury by MPs that heard evidence from, among others, Mark Hollinshead, managing director of Trinity Mirror’s nationals division; John McLellan, editor-in-chief at Scotsman Publications; and Paul Holleran, Scottish Organiser at the National Union of Journalists.

‘Crisis in the Scottish Press’, produced by the Scottish Affairs Committee at Westminster, examines current pressures facing the local, regional and national press industry in Scotland.

The launch is on Monday, at 10.30am, at Rothes Halls.

On Monday, chair of the Committee, Mohammad Sarwar MP, will give an overview of the inquiry and the report’s findings, and members of the audience will be invited to ask questions about the report.
