Letter from Manchester Victoria Baths
Trust to the Chairman of the Committee
Thank you for meeting with representatives from
our groups on Thursday. We all felt that we had a good opportunity
to express the problems facing us in our endeavours to secure
the future of some of Britain's historic swimming pools. Whilst
each of our buildings has some particular local issues, we believe
that there are important common factors. We also believe that
our campaigns illustrate the success or otherwise of some key
aspects of Government Policy. A summary of these points is enclosed.
We think that a select committee inquiry into
Listed Swimming Pools would be a very useful way of examining
these matters, and very much hope that the Committee for Culture
Media and Sport will agree to such an inquiry. We look forward
to hearing further in due course.
