asked the Minister of Works if he is aware of the proposed extension plans of the University of Edinburgh; that such plans, if carried out, would entirely envelop the Royal Scottish Museum and thus make any extension of that important institution no longer possible; and what action he proposes to take.

I am aware that the proposed extension plans of the University of Edinburgh would, if approved, absorb land which was acquired many years ago for an extension of the Royal Scottish Museum. The University's proposals are, I understand, in an early stage of consideration, and they will be the subject of consultation with my Department.
