Select Committee on Culture, Media and Sport Minutes of Evidence

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.
