In Brief: Temporary home chosen for Scottish MPs

The Scottish Office has chosen Edinburgh as interim home for the Scottish Parliament. It will sit in The Church of Scotland's Assembly Hall which will be refurbished and have a debating chamber built for the MPs. The almost two-and-a-half year stint in the building will cost £6 million and include cash for design, rates and staff. The hall will be used from next May to October 2001. Judges will shortlist 12 designers for the main building in Holyrood in the next two weeks.
