§ 59. Mr. MATHERS
asked the First Commissioner of Works the present position with regard to the erection of Government buildings upon the Calton gaol site, Edinburgh; and whether agreement has been reached with the Corporation of Edinburgh as to the design of the buildings?
§ The FIRST COMMISSIONER of WORKS (Mr. Lansbury)
As the result of a conference held at Edinburgh recently with representatives of the City Corporation, the Town Planning Committee and the National Library Trustees, agreement was reached as regards the erection of the Sheriff Court House on the Calton gaol site subject to a reference to the Scottish Fine Art Commission on the siting of the building. The question of the erection of a departmental building on that site is still under consideration. The answer to the latter part of the question is in the negative.
