The Scottish Government's energy transition plans cannot "come at the cost" of north-east oil and gas jobs, Aberdeenshire MSPs warned yesterday.
An MSP claims it is "not surprising" that the North Sea oil and gas industry has called for another lifeline in today's budget.
Aberdeenshire East MSP Gillian Martin is to write to the Scottish Government over alleged discrimination against job hunting former oil and gas workers.
The Scottish Government has said it will continue to pursue the development of a geothermal project including work on feasibility projects around the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre and Hill of Banchory.
A north-east MSP claims she has been "inundated" with correspondence from more oil and gas workers warning of discrimination.
