Anas Sarwar lashed at Nicola Sturgeon for awarding offshore energy contracts to private, overseas firms. The ScotWind leasing process awarded contracts worth £700 million to 17 projects for new offshore wind farms along Scotland’s coasts, including deals with BP and Shell. Mr Sarwar said: “I welcome inward investment but it shouldn’t come at a cost to the Scottish economy or our values.Let’s be clear about what has happened. This SNP Government have sold on the cheap the right to profit from Scotland’s energy transition to multinational companies with questionable human rights records.

“One of the new owners of Scotland’s sea bed were fined $54million for bribing Nigerian officials and $88million for bribing Indonesian officials.

“Another one was found to have contributed to human rights abuses at one of its construction sites, destroyed villages in Myanmar, relying on forced labour and using slavery to build pipe lines.”

Mr Sarwar added: “After 15 years isn’t this a case that an SNP Government has sold off Scottish jobs, sold off Scottish assets and has now sold off Scottish values.”

The First Minister replied: “I’m just sitting here reflecting almost unbelievably that Anas Sarwar has just accused me of behaving like a Tory.
