HC Deb 26 January 1979 vol 961 cc271-2W
Mr. Stephen Ross

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what steps he takes to ensure the preservation of a listed building which he has determined to be worthy of preservation by refusing to grant consent to demolish.

Mr. Shore

Initially it is for the local planning authority to take any necessary steps to secure the preservation of a building following the refusal of listed building consent.
