Highland Council is due to publish figures in the new year which will show how much the secretary of state's decision to allow Fort William Primary school to opt out will cost other local schools.

The Glasgow Herald (p1) reports that council convener Peter Peacock said that a proposed private finance initiative scheme has been destroyed by the 'shameful' opt out.

Mr Peacock, an independent councillor, also praised the Labour party's commitment to stop the Fort William opt out if it forms a government in the next few months.
