You're history: Jowell in threat to English Heritage
"Tessa Jowell, the culture secretary, is threatening to dismantle English Heritage, the government quango which runs 400 of the country's greatest historic sites, ranging from Stonehenge to Dover Castle.
The suggestion follows a series of bitter rows between the government and English Heritage, including one over its attempt to derail plans by John Prescott, the deputy prime minister, to demolish thousands of Victorian homes in northern England."
RESPONSE TO SUNDAY TIMES ARTICLE 13 MARCH, 2005
Members of the public may have seen a very misleading and untrue Sunday Times article suggesting that English Heritage is to be abolished or merged with other organisations. This is untrue and the Secretary of State Tessa Jowell has written to the Chairman refuting it and setting out the value Ministers place on English Heritage and the work we do.
