Is the minister aware that the proposals for Sighthill, which is in my Edinburgh Pentlands constituency, will contribute significantly to the regeneration of that area, in tandem with the recent proposals announced by Napier University? Does she agree that they will, to an extent, offset the failures on the housing front arising from the housing stock transfer ballot, which does not augur well in respect of high-rise housing in the area? Is she further aware that the proposed stadium at Sighthill incorporates a running track and is intended as a dual-purpose stadium for athletes and those who play rugby and soccer?
