§ Mr. Galbraith
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what assessment he has made of the correspondence from the International Union for Conservation of Nature on the Cairngorm funicular; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Kynoch
My right hon. Friend has received three letters from the International Union for Conservation of Nature on the proposal to construct a funicular railway on Cairngorm. He has advised them that the application is currently before Highland Council, as planning authority, but should the matter come before him for determination, their views would be taken into account.
