HC Deb 07 November 1979 vol 973 c231W
Mr. David Price

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many buildings of special architectural or historic interest in Scotland are currently classified as grade I and grade II, respectively, under the Town and Country Planning Act; how many of the grade II buildings are classified as grade II*; how many buildings are on the supplementary—grade III—list; and how many churches are classified as A and B, respectively.

Mr. Rifkind

Of the 24,029 buildings statutorily listed, 2,118 are in the top category A, 19,705 in category B and 2,206 in category C. In addition, there are on a supplementary list 9,735 buildings which have no statutory protection. These are currently being reviewed with a view to determining which should be added to the statutory list.

Churches are not listed separately and to ascertain the number in each category would involve disproportionate expenditure.
