star this property answer text <p>The Church Commissioners provide financial and administrative support to cathedrals and dioceses. It is up to each self-governing church or cathedral to raise funds for development projects, and the National Church Institutions provide advice and support.</p><p>The changing priorities and declining budget of the Heritage Lottery Fund is a matter of concern, as this is where much fundraising money comes from; officers at national level continue to work with the Heritage Lottery Fund on the specific issues churches face. The HLF is currently reviewing its strategic priorities and I would encourage all Hon. members to consider sending in a response, making the importance of churches as community assets clear.</p><p>The Church of England has been in discussions with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and HM Treasury about the current underspend of the Listed Places of Worship Grant Scheme, realocating the underspend would enable the Church to deliver a number of the recommendations in the Taylor Review.</p><p> </p>

It is a voluntary self-assessment which takes place annually, and applies to hospitals, hospices, and day treatment centres providing NHS funded care. PLACE includes questions on car parking relating to the charging, concessions, and payment methods, including “Does the organisation provide car parking charge concessions?”:</p><p> </p><p>Total responses = 391</p><p> </p><p>Yes = 346 = 88%</p><p> </p><p>No = 45 = 12%</p><p> </p><p>All PLACE data is published at:</p><p> </p><p><a href="http://hefs.hscic.gov.uk/PLACE.asp" target="_blank">http://hefs.hscic.gov.uk/PLACE.asp</a></p><p> </p><p>The Department published clear guidelines (the car parking principles) for NHS organisations that they are expected to follow. However, the provision of parking spaces and the level of any charges are matters for individual NHS trusts. NHS organisations must have the autonomy to make decisions that best suit their local circumstances.</p><p> </p><p>Details of charges, concessions and additional charges should be well publicised including at car park entrances, wherever payment is made and inside the hospital. They should also be included on the hospital website and on patient letters and forms, where appropriate.</p><p> </p><p>As the guidance makes clear, hospitals should put concessions in place for those who most need help including disabled people, carers and staff who work shifts. The NHS itself is responsible for ensuring that charges are fairly applied. Patients, visitors and staff who have problems with car parking should therefore contact the NHS organisation which runs the car park.</p>
