HC Deb 15 November 1971 vol 826 c55W
Mr. Ewing

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has had from organisations interested in the conservation of historic parts of Stirling threatened by redevelopment; and if, as a result of such representations, it is his intention to hold a public inquiry.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

Representations against the proposed demolition of the Port Street Bastion have been made by the Stirling Archaeological and Field Society, the Forth branch of the Saltire Society, the Scottish Regional Group of the Council for British Archaeology, the Stirling Society of Architects, the Scottish Civic Trust and the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland. As a result of discussions between the town council and the developers, amended proposals have been put forward which would keep a part of the Bastion. I am studying these amended proposals and arranging for them to be made known to the objectors.
