§ 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.
