Scottish secretary Ian Lang has been asked to intervene in the dispute over the future of the site of the former Glasgow garden festival, reports The Herald (p3).

Scottish Conservative chairman Michael Hirst approached Mr Lang on behalf of a group of business leaders who favour a 'more visionary' scheme to the one currently supported by the Glasgow Development Agency.

The current plans involve the erection of a 300 ft millennium tower, a hi-tech business park, and a national science centre.

Backers of the alternative 'Tivoli Gardens-style scheme' have urged the city council the GDA, the Scottish Office and Scottish Enterprise to put off any 'irrevocable' decisions until their project is evaluated.
