Standish Hospital

Volume 486: debated on Tuesday 13 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what the outcome was of the application to list Block C of the Standish Hospital site; on what basis the decision was taken; for what reasons the hon. Member for Stroud was not informed of the decision; and if he will make a statement. (244332)

[holding answer 17 December 2008]: After careful consideration of all the evidence, including taking account of advice from English Heritage, and representations by others, I have decided that Block C (former Women’s Ward), Standish Hospital is not of sufficient architectural or historic interest to merit listing. The decision was taken on 29 October 2008. My hon. Friend should have been informed of this decision by letter and I regret that this did not happen.
