§ Mr. Maclennan
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what written objections he has received to proposals to develop wind farms at West Garty and Gartymore, Sutherland; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Kynoch
My right hon. Friend has received a total of 355 letters about proposals to develop wind farms at West Garty and Gartymore, Sutherland. Of these, 10 support the proposal, with 345 opposed to the development. Those in favour cite the positive aspects of green energy whereas those against argue on grounds of environmental impact, noise, visual intrusion and concerns about restoration.
