Government to decide on papers' sale

The Stornoway Gazette and West Coast Advertiser, the Galloway Gazette, Stranraer News and Carrick Gazette could be transferred from Regional Independent media to Gannett UK.

The companies have applied to the Trade and Industry Secretary for transfer of the titles and related assets without undergoing an inquiry by the Competition Commission.
