HC Deb 12 July 1976 vol 915 c24W
Mr. Beith

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what representations he has received in favour of the provision of a crematorium to serve North Northumberland and the Borders area of Scotland; and what reply he has given.

Mr. Guy Barnett

None. The establishment of a crematorium is a matter for the decision of the private company or burial authority concerned, subject to obtaining planning permission and the approvals prescribed in the Cremation Acts.
