Commenting as Donald Trump is invited to give evidence before the Scottish Parliament's Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee, Liberal Democrat Energy Spokesperson Liam McArthur MSP said:

Liam McArthur MSPLiam McArthur MSP"It is important that we do not let the spectacle of Mr Trump's appearance mask the serious underlying issue of Scotland's energy future and the need to tackle climate change.

"Mr Trump has been outspoken in his criticism of a few wind turbines several miles offshore from his golf course. His opposition is noted, but we should not let this distract us from the need to take action to meet our ambitious renewables and climate change targets.

"Mr Trump has interests in Scotland, but his views are not in Scotland's best interests."
