HC Deb 18 December 1995 vol 268 c848W
19. Sir Sydney Chapman

To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage if she will make a statement on the listing of post-war commercial and industrial buildings. [4654]

Mr. Sproat

My right hon. Friend announced on 24 November that she had that day added 21 post-war buildings—comprising 13 commercial, three industrial and five railway buildings—to the statutory list of buildings of special architectural or historic interest. Details are in the Library. Her decisions were in respect of 40 recommendations she had received from English Heritage, and followed a consultation exercise in which owners and the general public were, for the first time, invited to give their comments on the proposed listings.
