asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how much public money has been spent on the maintenance and running, respectively, of Heveningham Hall in each financial year since it was acquired by his Department; if he will give his estimates for the current financial year and for 1975–76; and if he will also give the number of visitors during each year and the gross receipts from their admission.
Heveningham Hall was acquired by my Department in August 1970, and the relevant figures are given below.
|Year||Gross repair and maintenance costs||Gross expenditure on opening to the public|
|Year||Visitors||Gross admission receipts|
|1974–75 (to date)||£7,818|
