Appropriate commemoration

[What follows is the text of a written question and answer in the Scottish Parliament:]

Question S4W-16039: John Finnie, Highlands and Islands, Independent, Date Lodged: 25/06/2013
To ask the Scottish Government what it is doing to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Lockerbie air disaster.

Answered by Michael Matheson (18/07/2013):
Previous anniversaries of the Lockerbie air disaster have been commemorated in a manner decided by the wishes of the bereaved families. With the 25th anniversary approaching later this year, the Scottish Government will be guided by the wishes of the bereaved families in terms of how such a terrible tragedy should be commemorated appropriately.

[It is respectfully suggested that the most appropriate way of commemorating the tragedy would be to announce the setting up of the independent inquiry that many of the UK relatives of the victims have called for.]
