To ask the Scottish Government whether it has considered appeals made to it by the Friends of the Museum of Fire in Edinburgh to retain the museum in the former Central Fire Station at Lauriston Place in Edinburgh.
Answered by: Annabelle Ewing 26 September 2016
Yes. The Scottish Government has been mindful of the appeals made by the Friends of the Museum of Fire in Edinburgh, and recognises the importance of Scotland’s firefighting history, and the role of the Museum in telling this story. The location of the Museum is a matter for the Board of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.
