HC Deb 18 July 1990 vol 176 c563W
Mr. Fisher

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will publish a table listing all buildings which are protected by grades I and II status.

Mr. Trippier

Local planning authorities hold copies of the lists of buildings of special architectural or historic interest in their areas and are required to make them available for public inspection free of charge. A complete set of lists is similarly available for inspection at the Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England, Fortress house, Savile row, London W1. Since there are now over 435,000 listed buildings in England, with the lists being constantly added to or amended, the hon. Member will understand that publication of a single table listing all such buildings is not a practical proposition.
