To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) what guidance has been given to local authorities about the safety-testing of non-monolithic memorials without approved ground anchor fixing; [98951](2) what action he plans to take to ensure that new memorials are installed to the code of practice produced by the National Association of Memorial Masons. [98950]

As I explained in my reply to the hon. Member for Westbury (Dr. Murrison) on 27 January 2003, Official Report, Column 622W, we hope to be in a position to issue appropriate guidance later this year in the light of the consideration currently being given to these matters by a Home Office-chaired group of relevant representative and professional organisations.
