§ Mr. Ernie Ross
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will list the persons and organisations who have written to him or his Department protesting about the proposals for the future use of Dryburgh, St. Margaret's and Blackshade primary schools in Dundee.
§ Mr. Allan Stewart
My right hon. Friend has received representations from eight members of the public regarding Tayside regional council's proposals to close these schools. It would not be appropriate for him to intervene unless and until it emerges that a particular proposal falls into the limited category of those which cannot be implemented without his consent.
