asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the estimated cost of redeveloping Edinburgh dental hospital and school.
The estimated cost depends upon the nature and scale of the redevelopment proposed.

The total costs of these options which would fall on Edinburgh university and Lothian health board, are as follows:
|Options||*Costs (£ million)|
|New building, enhanced||7·845||0·239|
|New building, typical||7·286||0·231|
|Upgrade existing building and||1·996||(0·009)†|
|Upgrade and extend existing||2·925||0·027|
|building and relocate|
* Costs are based on 1983–84 levels.
