11. Earl of Dalkeith
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the purpose of his policy of listing certain buildings as being of historic or architectural merit; and if he will make a statement.
Earl of Dalkeith
Would the Minister of State agree that this magnificent work of listing which is going on will be quite fruitless unless it is carried to its logical conclusion of implementing many building preservation orders? Does he realise that the record in Scotland over building preservation orders is deplorable when compared with that of England?
