HC Deb 08 May 1989 vol 152 cc333-4W
Mr. Robert B. Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what information he has on the ownership and state of repair of the Adam house, Mavisbank, in Edinburgh.

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

I understand that ownership of Mavisbank house is shared jointly by three citizens of the United States of America. The house is presently derelict. Emergency works were carried out in 1987, at public expense, to safeguard the stability of the house.
