To ask the Scottish Government how it promotes the protection of mining heritage in Fife.
Answered by: Fiona Hyslop 13 December 2018
The support for promotion and conservation of Scotland’s heritage is a key function for a number of Scotland’s publicly funded bodies, including Historic Environment Scotland, Museums Galleries Scotland, National Museums Scotland and Scotland’s Industrial Museums. The National Mining Museum in Newtongrange, for example, promotes the history of mining and mining heritage sites across Scotland, including from Fife.
