§ Mr. Pavitt
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT the date on which Lancaster House has not been open to the public on Sundays during the last year and the reasons for the withdrawal of its facilities.
§ Mr. Amery
Lancaster House is normally open for public viewing at weekends from Easter until mid-December.
