Lord Sewel: Sergeant Hughes' report was made available to the Cullen Inquiry as a production. The report contains sensitive information about children who attended a summer camp run by Thomas Hamilton in 1991 (not the children of Dunblane) and alleged offences against them. For these reasons it was considered appropriate that the production should remain closed for 100 years. This closure is in accordance with current Government guidelines published in the White Paper Open Government (Cm 2290 (1993)).
Lord Sewel: Any person who is not domiciled in Scotland may shoot on the foreshore provided they hold a valid shotgun certificate or visitor's shotgun permit granted by the chief constable in accordance with the Firearms Act 1968 (as amended).
The Minister of State, Department for Education and Employment (Baroness Blackstone): Nearly 500 applications were received in the second round of bidding to the Adult and Community Learning Fund, which closed on 30 November 1998. Following consideration by the department's independent advisory panel, we are today announcing funding of £3.5 million for 96 projects covering a wide range of local activities to involve more people in learning relevant to their lives. A list of the successful projects has been placed in the Library.
