asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will list the special extraordinary grants made directly by his Department to public museums in Scotland to assist with their acquisition of works of art and museum objects during the period from 1st April to 1st August 1978 inclusive, specifying in each case (a) the date, object and museum concerned, and (b) the amount of the relevant special grant and its percentage of the total cost of the object, and also indicating where applicable whenever and to what extent recourse was had to the Treasury contingency reserve.

No such grants were made by my right hon. Friend during the period in question.
