HC Deb 03 July 1989 vol 156 cc50-1W
Mr. Greg. Knight

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what plans he has for further promoting Scotland's heritage and culture.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

The Government's booklet "Scotland's Heritage" was published on 9 June and copies were placed in the Library. This made it clear that our policy has been, and will remain, to support the conservation of Scotland's heritage and to promote wide public appreciation and understanding of Scotland's rich and diverse culture. Amongst many initiatives giving effect to this policy, my right hon. and learned Friend announced on 9 June a commitment in principle to the development of a museum of Scotland which would exhibit the natural, social, economic and cultural history of Scotland.
