HC Deb 01 August 1956 vol 557 c170W
Lieut.-Colonel Cordeaux

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what arrangements have finally been made for the management of the Nottingham General Cemetery, following the liquidation of the cemetery company.

Mr. Sandys

As the result of discussions which have taken place between the Nottingham City Council, the Commissioners of Crown Lands and my Department, the city council has now decided to acquire the cemetery under the provisions of the Open Spaces Act, 1906. Outstanding burial rights will be respected. I should like to express my appreciation of the council's public-spirited action in voluntarily assuming responsibility for the management of the cemetery in this way.
