§ Lord Fearn
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether financial help has been given to any areas of England and Wales where local authorities seek to preserve prehistoric footprints such as those found on the beach at Formby in Merseyside. [HL819]
§ Lord McIntosh of Haringey
In England it is for local authorities to allocate their resources as they deem appropriate, in order to reflect local needs as well as providing effective stewardship for their historic environment.
In Wales this is a matter for the devolved administration.
