§ Mr. Chapman

(2) how many listed buildings were demolished in the latest 12-month period for which figures are available;
(3) what is the total number of listed buildings currently in each grade, respectively.
§ Mr. Macfarlane
The numbers of listed buildings and their grading at 31 December 1983 and at 31 December 1984 (the latest date for which figures are available) are as follows:
Grade 31 December 1983 31 December 1984 I 5,517 5,625 II 303,340 332,454 TOTAL 308,857 338,079
* Grade II* buildings are not separately identified in these figures, but included in the numbers given for grade II buildings.
The increase in the total number of listed buildings between 31 December 1983 and 31 December 1984 was thus 29,222.
In the 12-month period to 31 December 1984, consent was given for the total or partial demolition of the following numbers of listed buildings:
Grade Total demolition Partial demolition I nil 94 II 3 155 II 185 1,836 TOTAL 188 2,085
