To ask the Scottish Government whether the cost per pupil at Tiree High School of £33,361 is one of the highest such figures in Scotland and, if so, what steps is it taking to ensure that any unavoidable additional costs for island education born by Argyll and Bute Council are supported in the same way as similar costs incurred by the island authorities.
