HC Deb 10 December 1963 vol 686 c52W
41. Sir M. Stoddart-Scott

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what steps are being taken to prevent the Puritan Chapel at Bramhope from becoming derelict; and if he will take steps to ensure that some authority is made responsible for the restoration and maintenance of this ancient building before it is too late.

Mr. Sharples

We are prepared to make a very substantial grant to enable the Chapel to be repaired, provided that steps are taken to ensure that it is properly maintained in the future. We have urged the County Council of the West Riding of Yorkshire to assume responsibility for maintenance.
