HC Deb 19 October 1993 vol 230 cc202-3W
Mr Thurnham

To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage if he will enable denominations to dispose of redundant places of worship to suitable charities for less than full consideration.

Mr. Sproat

My right hon. Friend has today made a direction to this effect under section 4(11) of the Redundant Churches and Other Religious Buildings Act 1969 in favour of the Friends of Friendless Churches. He made a similar direction in May in favour of the Historic Chapels Trust. Copies of the directions have been placed in the Library and I will arrange for this to be done also for any further such directions that he may make.
