§ Mr. Anderson
asked the Secretary of State for Wales, whether he is satisfied with the number of staff in his Department concerned with the listed building programme; and whether he will consider subcontracting all or part of the work load to county councils.
§ Mr. Michael Roberts
The current progress of the listed building resurvey programme is satisfactory. The programme and the resources necessary for its 463W operation—including staff numbers—are reviewed from time to time. Alternative methods of carrying out this work will be kept under consideration.
