HC Deb 30 April 2001 vol 367 c481W
35. Mr. Fabricant

To ask the hon. Member for Middlesbrough, representing the Church Commissioners, what advice the Commission gives churches on their use for purposes other than worship. [158174]

Mr. Stuart Bell

The Church Commissioners' primary responsibility is the management of their assets to support the Church of England's nation-wide ministry. Advice is provided to parishes on the care, use and development of churches by the Council for the Care of Churches and at local level by the 43 Diocesan Advisory Committees for the Care of Churches.
