Heritage Protection Bill
I'm surprised a copy of the Queens speech hasn't already bin found on a train!But.. give it timeWink
My money is on the new Heritage Bill being in the Queens Speach if there is to a general election next year.

One of the earlier questions shows that the government does take heritage seriously ie:

"T2. [234009] Hugh Bayley (City of York) (Lab): York’s designation as an area of archaeological importance protects the unique and irreplaceable archaeological remains below the city’s streets from being dug up by public utility companies. The York-based Council for British Archaeology and the York Archaeological Trust are worried that the designation could be changed in the new heritage Bill. Will the Minister be willing to meet me, and archaeologists from York, to discuss our concerns?

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport (Barbara Follett): I would be extremely happy to meet my hon. Friend; in fact, I have a date in my diary for 15 December."

A good point.

Lets keep our collectives crossed then!

REPLY from my MP

Dear David,

Many thanks for correspondence sent to my constituency office. I am sorry I am a bit slow in responding but I welcomed your letter and support the sentiments expressed within. I have sent a copy of your letter to the minister and confirm that I will try to raise the matter with him also at the next scheduled departmental questions in the House of Commons. I can assure you of my continued support in these matters.

I trust this is useful.

Yours sincerely
Anne Moffat MP
