HC Deb 21 October 1992 vol 212 c323W
35. Mr. Malcolm Bruce

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what plans he has for promoting Scotland during the United Kingdom presidency of the European Community.

Mr. Allan Stewart

The holding of the European Council in Edinburgh in December offers a tremendous opportunity for promoting Scotland on a world stage. The Scottish Office is working with a number of other organisations to ensure that the most is made of that opportunity. A co-ordinated media strategy is in place, which includes a programme of visits to Scotland by foreign journalists. Scotland is also playing a major role in the programme of presidency special events, of which over 25 have or will take place in Scotland.
