Synopsis

Who Pays the Ferryman is an informative and critical analysis of Scotland's ferry services. It describes the 'glory days' of how, from modest beginnings, Scotland once led the world in maritime development. It contrasts the achievements of the past with the failures, waste and inadequacy of much of today's state-owned ferry provision. In addition to showing how a more equitable fares regime can be devised, Roy Pedersen also addresses sensitive issues such as CO2 and other emissions, state versus private ownership, the place of trade unions and, most importantly of all how, the lot of our island and peninsular communities can be bettered through provision of efficient cost effective ferry services. Drawing on best practice at home and overseas, it sets out how Scottish ferry services can be revolutionised to be, once again, among the best in the world.

Roy Pedersen graduated from Aberdeen University. He has spent most of his working life in Inverness in economic, social and cultural development with HIDB and HIE, and more recently as proprietor of a consultancy business covering the diverse fields of transport and cultural development. He is a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a Member of the Chartered Institute of Transport.
