To ask Her Majesty's Government when the grant-in-aid in support of English Heritage, as set out in the consultation document published by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport English Heritage New Model on 6 December 2013, is due to expire; what share of the £80 million has been spent so far; and how much of that has been spent on the upkeep of Kenwood House and its gardens.
The Grant in Aid relief to English Heritage Trust (EHT) runs for 7 years from 2015/16, with the final instalment due in 2021/22. EHT has spent £50 million, or 63%, of the £80 million New Model grant up to 31 March 2019, the most recent financial year for which audited accounts are available.
At Kenwood, EHT has spent, out of the total £80 million available, £1.1 million on conservation work and £1.2 million on catering improvements and the conversion of the unused stable block to residential accommodation.
