HC Deb 02 December 1986 vol 106 c541W
Mr. George

Robertson asked the Solicitor-General for Scotland what plans he has to remedy the accommodation problems of the procurator fiscal's office in Hamilton.

The Solicitor-General for Scotland

The most recent option considered for the rehousing of the procurator fiscal was the development proposed by Hamilton district council on the vacant site in Almada street. As the letter from my hon. Friend the Member for Ealing, Acton (Sir G. Young) dated 22 July 1986 to the hon. Gentleman intimated, none of the tenders received was acceptable to the Property Services Agency, but it advised the council that it would be prepared to consider a revised scheme.

To date the district council has not come forward with further proposals. Discussions are continuing between the PSA and my officials and a meeting has been arranged for Monday 15 December to discuss possible alternatives. Until the outcome of these discussions is known, I am unable to comment further.
