HC Deb 28 June 1989 vol 155 c495W
89. Mr. Key

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on the future of Stonehenge.

Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

English Heritage is responsible for managing Stonehenge on behalf of my right hon. Friend. As my hon. Friend knows, it has plans for a new visitor centre and other major improvements in the way Stonehenge is presented to the public. Critical to the success of these plans is the choice of access route to the visitor centre. This has taken time to resolve because of the conflicting interests of adjoining landowners, and questions of archaeology and military security. However, discussions are taking place, and I hope that the matter will be resolved soon.
