Demands for a tailor made jobs and investment package for Fife yesterday put the government under further pressure to step forward with money to offset Rosyth dockyard's loss of nuclear refitting, the Scotsman reports (p7).

The paper reports councillor John MacDougall, leader of Fife region as saying the area deserved investment similar to the £45 million given over five years to an urban development fund set up by the government last year in Plymouth, home of Devonport dockyard.

Up to 2,000 dockyard related jobs at Rosyth could be at risk, he said, far more than government predictions of 450 redundancies.
