§ LORD TREFGARNE
asked Her Majesty's Government:
- (i) What restoration or repair work is at present being done to Westminster Abbey or is planned for the next five years;
- (ii) What is the estimated cost of this work;
- (iii) What proportion of the cost will be borne by the Government.
§ LORD MOWBRAY AND STOURTON
This is a matter for the Dean and Chapter. As the Abbey is an ecclesiastical building in use for public worship they are not, under present circumstances, in receipt of a Government grant for its repair.
