asked the Minister of Works if he is aware of the dangerous condition in which the wartime Royal Air Force buildings on the island of Tiree have been left as a result of partial demolition work; that owing to the collapse of a wall of a partly demolished building four cattle were recently killed; and what decision has been reached by the Temporary Defence Works Committee of his Department regarding the further clearance and reinstatement of these sites on the island.

I am not aware of the facts mentioned in the first two parts of the Question. Demolition and clearance of the Air Force buildings on Tiree are still in progress. I will arrange for one of my officers to visit Tiree as soon as possible, and I will communicate with the hon. and gallant Member when I have had a report.
