HC Deb 13 March 1962 vol 655 c136W
31. Mr. Denis Howell

asked the Minister of Works what grant to improve Mawley Hall, Worcestershire, has been discussed with or offered to the new owner; and if he will give details of such discussions, the reasons for them and the amount of public funds involved.

Lord John Hope

I do not make grants for improvement as opposed to repair. The new owner of Mawley Hall has been offered by me, and has accepted, a grant of £60,000 to help meet the heavy cost of necessary structural repairs.
