§ Mr. McQuarrie
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, in the light of the considerable concern about the provision of proper court facilities in Peterhead, when he expects that the building leased in 1978 for court improvements will have the alterations completed and put into use.
§ Mr. Rifkind
I am aware of the inadequacies of the court accommodation at Peterhead and of the proposals to provide permanent suitable accommodation. These proposals involve the temporary out-housing of the court and the temporary accommodation should be ready early next year following on the signing of a lease on 1 April 1979.
