Hudghton (Greens/EFA) - I voted in favour of the Graça Moura report which rightly highlighted the key role played by local, regional and national authorities in fostering and protecting cultural heritage. Europe's cultural diversity is one of our great treasures and my group, the European Free Alliance, is committed to safeguarding this diversity. Similarly, my party is committed to a culturally cosmopolitan Scotland and in government is taking steps to enhance Scotland's rich cultural tapestry, be that in our own linguistic diversity or our country's ability to take key decisions in relation to broadcasting. Europe can look forward to a culturally rich Scotland taking an independent place in the EU.
