To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what grants his Department and English Heritage have awarded for the maintenance of grade I listed buildings in Liverpool in the last two years; how much was awarded in each case; and if he will make a statement. (248325)

English Heritage advises that they have offered the following grants to grade I listed buildings in Liverpool in the last two years. English Heritage’s grant schemes are primarily for major urgent structural repair projects rather than ongoing maintenance.
