§ 33. Miss BONDFIELD
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department., as representing the First Commissioner of Works, if he is aware that Dunkery Beacon is in the market; 618 and whether, in view of the danger that this historic spot may be lost to the people, he will have it scheduled as an ancient monument?
§ 34. Mr. W. BAKER
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether his attention has been called to the proposed sale of the Cutcombe estate, which includes Dunkery Beacon; and whether he will cause inquiries to be made with a view to securing this hill, with its historic monuments, for the nation?
§ Sir V. HENDERSON
My Noble Friend has seen a notice in the Press regarding Dunkery Beacon. He is quite prepared to schedule the monuments in question, but regrets that no funds are available for their purchase by the State.
