Alert me about debates like this
asked the Minister of Health how many cemeteries in this country are privately owned; and whether the number is increasing.
I regret that the information is not available.
Can the Minister say whether there are any cemeteries which are privately owned and run for private profit in this country?
I find it difficult to understand the purport of the hon. Gentleman's Question, and I cannot answer his supplementary. Perhaps he will put a specific question on the Order Paper.
But can the Minister say that there are no cemeteries privately owned and run for private profit?
I can say neither one thing nor the other.
Is the Minister aware that there are privately-owned cemeteries in England which are disgracefully kept?
