§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Wales to which private bodies and organisations he is prepared to give permission for the use of castles and other ancient buildings in his care in Wales for cultural or historic commemorative functions; and whether it is his policy to make any charge for such a use of these buildings.
§ Mr. Michael Roberts
Each request is considered individually. Permission is given wherever possible, subject to considerations such as safety, staff availablility and acccess for other visitors. A charge is normally made to cover the cost of heating, lighting and administrative overheads.
