Written answers (Question to Arts)

Following on from the National Heritage Plan, 2002-2007 and over the course of the last five years, my Department’s responsibilities for the development of policies for the protection and promotion of our built and natural heritage has been actively concentrated on various on-going policy developments responding to the many current challenges for each of the sectoral areas within my Heritage remit.

Whilst my Department has no plans to develop an overall heritage plan updating the National Heritage Plan of 2002 to 2007 at this stage, this situation will be kept under review.
