§ 29. Mr. Parker
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Buildings whether any special exemption is given to the general order for the removal of railings for those surrounding churches, burial grounds, tombstones and statues?
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Buildings (Mr. Hicks)
No special exemption has been given, but appeals in such cases are dealt with by direct discussion between officers of my Department and representatives of the various churches concerned. These arrangements are working; satisfactorily.
§ Lieut.-Colonel Sir Thomas Moore
Will the Minister take special care that railings of artistic design or distinction shall not be removed?
