§ Sir M. CONWAY
asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he will consider the advisability of introducing legislation at an early date to enlarge the powers of the Ancient Monuments Commission so as to extend protection to the cathedrals and parish churches of this country?
§ Sir A. MOND
I am considering the appointment of a committee to advise on the question of amending and strengthening the existing Ancient Monuments Act and also to consider whether the powers conferred by Parliament should be widened so as to cover the points referred to by my hon. Friend.
