asked the Minister of Works whether he will now make a statement on the issuing of an annual pass for ancient monuments what the price of the pass will be; and from where it can be obtained.

Annual season tickets admitting the holder, accompanied by one other person, to all ancient monuments and historic buildings under the control of the Ministry of Works are now available at the price of El. Tickets may be obtained on application to the Secretary, Ministry of Works, at Lambeth Bridge House, London, S.E.1, or 122, George Street, Edinburgh.

While thanking my right hon. Friend for the imagination that he and his Department have shown, may I ask whether the lists of the ancient monuments that he controls will be available?

A good deal of information has been published about them. I may say that it applies to all ancient monuments under the control of the Ministry of Works; there is no restriction with regard to any of them. I will consider whether it will be possible to publish a list, but the list will have to cover something like 470 different establishments.
