To ask the Scottish Government for how long scaffolding has been in place at Dumbarton Castle and when it anticipates it will be removed.
Answered by: Fiona Hyslop 25 October 2016
The Historic Environment Scotland Act 2014 created a new public body, Historic Environment Scotland (HES), to carry out the regulatory and other functions which were formerly delivered by, or on behalf of, Scottish Ministers.
The information you requested is not held centrally and is an operational matter for Historic Environment Scotland who are responsible for delivering Scottish Ministers’ functions relating to the properties in their care. I have therefore referred your question to the HES Chief Executive who will reply to you directly.
