§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether it is the practice of the Historic Buildings Council for Scotland to advise the granting of further grant or grants for structural damage caused to any building already in receipt of a grant from the Historic Buildings Council for Scotland, by aircraft taking off or landing.
§ Mr. Allan Stewart
Applications for historic buildings repair grants for previously assisted properties are assessed individually by the Historic Buildings Council for Scotland, whose recommendations on grant awards take account of the architectural or historic merits of the building, the extent, nature and cost of repairs and the financial means of owners. Grant is not awarded for work which is the subject of civil claims against third parties unless and until the extent of responsibility for costs is determined.
