World Heritage Sites

Volume 499: debated on Wednesday 11 November 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what visits in an official capacity (a) he and (b) his predecessor made to each UK world heritage site in the last 12 months. (297249)

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State will be visiting UK Heritage Sites as part of a series of regional visits. His predecessor visited the Tower of London World Heritage Site in November last year.

May I remind the hon. Member that the House of Commons itself is part of the Palace of Westminster, St Margaret's Church and Westminster Abbey World Heritage Site, one of the United Kingdom's 28 World Heritage Sites.
