Sandy meets George Lyon in Brussels

'George Lyon, Liberal Democrat MEP for Scotland, has met with Cllr Sandy Park of Highland Council in Brussels as Cllr Park attended his first meeting at the Committee of the Regions (CoR) following nomination by the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA).

Mr Lyon was contributing to a debate on the future of Common Agriculture Policy (CAP) in which Cllr Park outlined the importance of continued agricultural support to Highland communities.

Commenting, Mr Lyon said:
"I am delighted that Cllr Park has joined the CoR. His input will be invaluable as the reform of the CAP moves forward.

"It is vital that the interests of Scottish farmers are put front and centre and I will meet with Cllr Park and his Highland council colleagues in the coming weeks to discuss CAP reform in detail."'

On another HC related internet matter - seen on twitter today:

'Anytime you mention that I can't help but think along the lines of 'The Highland Council wants you to take the ring to Mordor'.

Yes you're right, twitter is full of strange nonsense.
