§ Mr. Llew Smith
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what additional resources he will make available to Scottish Heritage to assist in the emergency preservation of architectural sites on the coasts of the Western Isles, Orkney Isles and Shetland Isles following the storms in January.
§ Sir Hector Monro
Although these storms did considerable damage, they were but one episode in a continuing problem which Historic Scotland is already addressing by monitoring, survey and excavation. I am satisfied that Historic Scotland has the resources it needs to continue this work.
