asked Her Majesty's Government:

When the new grant to assist repairs and maintenance to listed places of worship will be launched. [HL1833]

Baroness Blackstone

I have today launched this grant, entitled the Listed Places of Worship Grant Scheme. Documentation relating to the new scheme is now available and may be obtained through the scheme's telephone hotline (0845 601 5945—calls charged at local rate), website (www.lpwscheme.org.uk) or by writing to:

  • Listed Places of Worship Grant Scheme
  • PO Box 609
  • Newport
  • NP10 8QD.

This new grant will provide much-needed public support for these historic buildings. The scheme underlines the value this Government place on our important historic environment.
