HC Deb 26 March 1971 vol 814 c226W
Mr. Faulds

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will now introduce legislation to make mandatory the prompt reporting of any archaeological evidence uncovered during the rebuilding or development of any site by the firm concerned and introduce financial penalties for failure to do so.

Mr. Amery

No. I think that for this purpose I can best rely on the alertness of archaeological societies and the goodwill of those concerned on site, backed by existing statutory powers.
