§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage if he will list the items of value to date that English Heritage has removed from Brodsworth hall, Brodsworth, near Doncaster, south Yorkshire, and placed in secure storage prior to them being replaced after the hall's renovation.
§ Mr. Brooke
Approximately 17,000 objects of historic importance, valued at around £3.5 million, have been inventoried and are in store. Producing a list of this size for publication is impractical in the time available. However, I understand that English Heritage has invited the hon. Member to visit Brodsworth hall, and that it would be happy to extend its invitation to cover the store and the work in progress at both sites.
