Over the last year, my hon. Friend the Member for Stevenage (Barbara Follett) has jointly chaired the Stonehenge Project Board which oversees plans to improve the environment and facilities at Stonehenge including closure of the A344.

The Government recently announced a £10 million contribution to enable English Heritage to build new, environmentally sustainable visitor facilities which will deliver a world class visitor experience at this iconic monument.

There are ongoing discussions between ministers, officials and English Heritage on the protection and maintenance of both Stonehenge and Avebury.
