S5W-15583: Colin Smyth (South Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 22 March 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what support it is providing to Dumfries and Galloway Council to host a permanent display of the Galloway Hoard at Kirkcudbright Art Gallery.

Answered by: Fiona Hyslop 12 April 2018

The Scottish Government is committed to support for a partnership agreement to be reached between National Museums Scotland and Dumfries & Galloway Council to ensure access to the Hoard for the wider Scottish public and visitors both in Galloway and across Scotland.

I am due to meet Dumfries & Galloway Council to seek an outcome which is mutually beneficial for both parties.
