The council is carrying out a full investigating into how items including Gaelic books were in a skip.
We apologise for any distress or upset caused and are taking the matter very seriously. Making the best possible use of the resources we have is always a priority.
Moreover we dedicate a lot of time and effort to supporting the Gaelic language. We had already removed a number of Gaelic resources from the Education Office, for sharing among our services, and understand the concerns about why this has not happened with all resources.
We can assure members of the public that we are carrying out a full investigation into items disposed of.
The investigation is a priority to us and the lessons learned as a result of the investigation will guide future actions.
