holding answer 17 December 2008

After careful consideration of all the evidence, including taking account of advice from English Heritage, and representations by others, I have decided that Block C (former Women's Ward), Standish Hospital is not of sufficient architectural or historic interest to merit listing. The decision was taken on 29 October 2008. My hon. Friend should have been informed of this decision by letter and I regret that this did not happen.
