BORDERS MP John Lamont has commented on reports that a Selkirk country store is closing down.
Carrs Billington is understood to be shutting its Dunsdale Haugh site.
Mr Lamont said: “This is more sad news for jobs in the Borders, and particularly in Selkirk.
“I know that Carrs Billington is very well thought of in the local farming community.
“I am relieved that their Jedburgh branch will remain open, but I know this will not be any comfort for those who are faced with losing their jobs in Selkirk.
“I have made contact with the commercial manager to try and ascertain the circumstances surrounding this closure and what it will mean for their employees.”
