asked the Secretary of State for Scotland why the present owner of Venlaw Castle Hotel, Peebles, is being charged £300 per year development charge for his hotel.

I regret I cannot undertake to answer questions about the basis on which development charges are determined. This is a matter within the day-to-day administration of the Central Land Board. I should, however, explain that in the present case the charge is not £300 a year but a total of £300 for three years.
