Your candidates views on autonomy – Cecil Smith

We’ve been asking the candidates in the upcoming council elections what their views on autonomy are. The specific questions we asked are:-

1. Do you believe Shetland should have more powers locally?
2. Do you think autonomy is something the next Council should investigate (as the Orkney Islands Council are taking steps to do)?

We shall be adding a page for each response as they come in.

Cecil Smith – Lerwick South.

I am going to be very brief with my reply.
The answer to both your questions would be a YES but there needs to be a whole lot of sensible negotiation take place to make sure we get the best ever deal for our community.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to contribute.
