Mary Bryden, Director of Public Programmes, National Museums of Scotland

John Walter Jones, Chief Executive, Welsh Language Board

Meirion Prys Jones, Head of Language Planning, Welsh Language Board

2. McCrone Agreement: The Committee considered reviewing the implementation of the McCrone agreement and agreed, due to insufficient time to conduct a detailed inquiry, to recommend that this might be considered by a future Committee.

3. Reporters' Inquiries: The Committee was updated on reporters’ inquiries. The Committee agreed to close the inquiry on popular music as the appointed reporter was no longer a member of the Committee and to seek information from the Executive on the issue of primary school closures.

4. Roman Remains at Cramond: The Committee agreed that this matter was now an issue for the City of Edinburgh Council and the Cramond Management Group. The Committee expressed gratitude to the Lord Provost, Mr Eric Milligan, for his interest and support in this matter. The Committee agreed to recommend that a future Committee might wish to review progress at a later date.

5. Review of Scottish Screen: The Committee noted recent correspondence and agreed to consider this item again when further information had been received from the Executive.
