§ 4. Mr. Parker
asked the Minister of Works what progress has been made in the discussions about the preservation of the Old Manor House, Deal, and con version for modern use.
§ Lord John Hope
On the advice of the Historic Buildings Council for England, I offered the Deal Corporation a grant of £2,500 towards the cost of structural repairs to the Old Manor House; but even with this help the Corporation did not feel able to undertake its preservation. I understand that the building has now been demolished.
