HC Deb 12 July 1984 vol 63 cc620-1W
Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if his Department will give financial assistance towards keeping St. George's hall, Liverpool, in use.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

My Department has already contributed through the urban programme to the cost of a feasibility study by consultants on possible future uses of the hall.

I have recently been asked by Liverpool city council for a meeting to discuss the hall and I have agreed to this. It is too early at this stage to say whether we can provide any further assistance.
