RCAHMS and Historic Scotland Merger Bill

The First Minister Alex Salmond has confirmed in the Scottish Parliament today that one of the pieces of legislation to be introduced into the next parliamentary session is the RCAHMS and Historic Scotland Merger Bill. This follows the first announcement of the proposed merger in July 2012.

For more background on the merger process to date see http://www.historic-scotland.gov.uk/index/about/rcahmshsmerger/rcahmshsnews.htm


My wife Claire is planning to swim from the Scottish island of Cumbrae to the town of Largs on September 14th to raise money for local charity Gillian's Saltire Appeal, providing respite for families affected by cancer (Claire's mum and sister in Ireland have previously come through cancer, whilst my mum, based in England, currently has bladder cancer). Her Just Giving sponsorship page, with further details, is at http://www.justgiving.com/Claire-Paton1. If you can help to sponsor her, even by a wee amount, we'd be very grateful - many thanks!
