§ 64. Mr. DAVID EVANS (for Mr. ALED ROBERTS)
asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he has any announcement to make as to the handing over to his Department of parts of the town walls of Carnarvon?
§ Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
I am glad to have this opportunity of acknowledging the generosity of the owner of the greater part of the mediaeval town walls of Carnarvon, Sir Michael Duff Assheton Smith, who has presented them to the nation through my Department. As a result of this public-spirited action, the future preservation of these walls and towers is assured. These walls, which are a complete circuit round the mediaeval borough, when they have been exposed to view and carefully repaired, will form, together with the castle, one of the most impressive national monuments in the British Isles.
