In this week’s statement about the UK’s net-zero strategy, Boris Johnson said that by 2030, it should be supporting 440,000 jobs.

Sounds a lot but proportionately it would mean 40,000 in Scotland, which is not enough.

It must be Scotland’s ambition not only to maximise our immediate share but to replace all the jobs which will be lost as the North Sea phases out, which will fortunately not be as soon as some wish.
