§ 90. Mr. MANDER
asked the First Commissioner of Works what steps he is taking to preserve the castle and tithe barn at Acton Burnell where the Lords and Commons sat at the assembly of Parliament in 1283?
§ The FIRST COMMISSIONER of WORKS (Mr. Lansbury)
The castle of Acton Burnell is now in the charge of my Department and the necessary work of preservation is in hand. My Department is not in charge of the barn. I am informed that very little is left of the latter structure: but I shall inquire whether any steps need be taken to preserve what is left.
§ Mr. MANDER
Is it not the case that the right hon. Gentleman is only taking an interest in the place where the Lords sat and is not taking the same interest in the old home of the Commons?
