§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the latest estimate of the total cost of adapting the Royal High school to accommodate the Scottish Assembly; and if he can specify the week in which it is due to be ready for occupation.
§ Mr. Millan
The estimated cost of providing the accommodation needed for the Scottish Assembly and its staff remains at £3.75 million, as indicated to the hon. Member for Glasgow, Cathcart (Mr. Taylor) on 8 November [Vol. 957, c.239–40.] There is no single week during which all work on the accommodation is due to be brought to an end, but satisfactory progress continues to be made. All major works will be completed shortly.621W
