Osborne House

Volume 458: debated on Thursday 15 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport (1) if she will make a statement on the future of Osborne House on the Isle of Wight; (127467)

(2) what steps she is taking to seek to repeal part of the Osborne Estate Act 1902 on the convalescent wing.

We are exploring the options for repealing part of the Osborne Estate Act 1902, which will enable English Heritage to bring into use the wing previously used as a convalescent home.

Any proposals English Heritage develop will be subject to consultation with the local community, and will go through the usual planning procedures.
