To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has any current plans to commemorate Glasgow's year as the City of Culture by releasing further specific funding to the city for a permanent environmental testament to the year; and if he will make a statement.

The Government are contributing £0.5 million directly to the European City of Culture 1990 and, in addition, Government-funded bodies are committing significant resources in support of particular events taking place in 1990.
