capital costs were of providing the Kamp van Zeist facilities; and what percentage of those costs were met by (a) the UK Government, (b) the US Government and (c) the Scottish Parliament; 
The Scottish Executive was responsible for the conduct of the Lockerbie trial and incurred all of the associated capital costs. These capital costs, currently estimated at £11.5 million, were fully reimbursed by the Government. To date, the US Government have contributed some £15 million to the overall costs, both capital and current, of the trial and subsequent appeal.
Total current costs are estimated to be £63.8 million over the financial years 199899 through to 200102, but final audited figures for 200102 have yet to be finalised. It is also likely that there will be some further current costs into the current financial year 200203, though the sums involved will be relatively small. The site was returned to the Dutch Government on 2 April 2002. 80 per cent. of the current costs are being funded by the Government and 20 per cent. by the Scottish Executive.
