Hyslop Highlights the Importance of War Memorial Signage

Local Constituency MSP Fiona Hyslop has highlighted the importance of signage for our historical war memorial sites. In a debate in Parliament the Veteran’s Minister, Graeme Dey told the chamber in Holyrood that West Lothian Council have installed signage at the Korean War Memorial in the Bathgate Hills.

Fiona said,

“I am delighted that West Lothian Council has now installed the brown tourist signs on its road network directing tourists to the Korean War memorial.

“I am also pleased that having directly communicated with the Veterans Minister, Mr Graeme Dey, on the importance of this, The Scottish Government has entered into discussions with Transport Scotland to task them with scoping a potential review of its signage policy as it pertains to war memorials that are of national significance.

“These are important historical landmarks that ought to be easy to locate by our local residents and tourists alike and I would thank Mr Dey for taking this action following my discussions with him.”
