asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what criteria were used by the Countryside Commission for Scotland in selecting consultants to carry out an environmental study of existing skiing areas; what firm has been selected; and for what reasons.

The placing of contracts with consultants, under the powers given to commission research in the Countryside (Scotland) Act 1967, is a matter for decision by the Countryside Commission for Scotland without reference to me. I am therefore asking the chairman of the commission to write to the hon. Member with the information as soon as possible.
