Questions

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government how many heritage maintenance funds have been approved by HM Treasury. [HL6049]

To ask Her Majesty's Government what is their most recent estimate of the total value of assets currently held in heritage maintenance funds approved by HM Treasury; and on what date that estimate was made. [HL6050]

To ask Her Majesty's Government how many heritage maintenance funds have been approved by HM Treasury (a) between 1 January 2000 and 31 December 2004, and (b) since 1 January 2005. [HL6051]

A total of 135 heritage maintenance funds have been approved to date.

Information about the value of assets is not updated after a maintenance fund is approved. Details of the number of heritage maintenance funds approved at the specified dates could only be obtained at disproportionate cost. HMRC's systems do not capture the date of approval, and the documentation relating to funds is extensive.
