HC Deb 21 February 1996 vol 272 c180W
Mr. Galbraith

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what was the cost to Scottish Natural Heritage of the Lingerbay inquiry. [14611]

Mr. Kynoch

Scottish Natural Heritage estimates that it has spent £530,985 on the inquiry to date. This excludes an estimate of staff time, which could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
