What is the estimate of the number of Grade II listed buildings in England in public care compared to those privately owned.[HL4011]
Lord McIntosh of Haringey: The Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest currently has 366,753 entries (8,811 Grade I, 20,362 Grade II* and 337,580 Grade II). Entries can cover more than one building. No information is held centrally on the ownership of these buildings.
The Minister of State, Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (Baroness Hayman): The criteria governing the free distribution of fruit and vegetables are prescribed by EC regulation. There have been regulatory changes to the treatment of packaging and transport costs which have enabled the Intervention Board to adopt a more flexible approach.
The Intervention Board has been proactive in working with local authorities, councils and charitable organisations to improve the distribution of available produce. The aim is to enable larger quantities of produce to be transported to convenient regional points for collection by a network of smaller organisations. Uptake is however dependent upon the volumes of product withdrawn from the market and the willingness and ability of potential recipients to accept it.
Baroness Ramsay of Cartvale: The costs of the Scottish Parliament buildings will be met from the Scottish Assigned Budget, the rules for the determination of which were set out in the Statement of Funding Policy published by HM Treasury on 18 July 2000.
