asked the Solicitor-General for Scotland what is the current estimate of required extensions to the Scottish Law Commission's library facilities; what plans there are for such extensions; and what grants Her Majesty's Government envisage making available to fund such extensions.
In the longer term approximately 5,000 sq. ft. will be required to house the Commistion's library. Proposals to make the necessary accommodation available within the existing premises are under consideration. Accommodation for the Commission is provided by the Department of the Environment, which estimates that only modest expenditure will be involved when the library accommodation is being provided.
