Media Briefing by a Scottish Government Spokesperson - Monday 19 May 2014

The Scottish Government Spokesperson (SGS) welcomed journalists to the briefing and ran through the day's key events:

Transport Minister Keith Brown is visiting the Forth Replacement Crossing project in Rosyth as the first of four shipments of steel arrives for the Queensferry Crossing, signalling the start of a major new phase of work at the dockyards. Mr Brown will meet some of the new employees on the project and hear how the majority of deck preparations are now happening on site before they are lifted into position on the bridge.

Cabinet Secretary for Culture and External Affairs, Fiona Hyslop, is attending a demonstration by traditional skills apprentices in Edinburgh to promote Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2014.

The SGS then ran through key events for the rest of the week.
