HC Deb 23 April 1996 vol 276 c93W
Mr. Dafis

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what plans he has to publish a battlefields register for Wales.[25845]

Mr. Gwilym Jones

We have no plans currently to produce a battlefields register for Wales. In England a register has been produced which lists 43 known, and often well-documented, sites of significant military engagements. Military action in Wales generally took the form of skirmishes and sieges. In the latter case, these were often associated with major fortifications and related earthworks which are protected under the provisions of the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979.
