HC Deb 06 May 1954 vol 527 c37W
70. Captain Kerby

asked the Minister of Agriculture why he gave permission for the ploughing-up of part of the Normanton group of barrows, which form part of the Stonehenge complex, in view of the fact that these barrows are scheduled as an ancient monument.

Sir T. Dugdale

I think my hon. and gallant Friend is under a misapprehension. Application was made to my Department for a £10 an acre ploughing grant in respect of an area including part of the Normanton group of barrows. The applicant was told by my Department that he should not plough that part and that there could be no question of a grant in respect of it.
