HL Deb 21 October 1991 vol 531 cc126-7WA
Baroness Birk

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What are their plans for the future of Heveningham Hall.

Baroness Blatch

ID Investment Development AG, the company to which Heveningham Hall was sold in 1981, is now in receivership. The official receivers have asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he wishes to exercise his right to repurchase the Hall, as set out in the 1981 conveyance. My right honourable friend is considering the matter and will announce his decision as soon as possible.
