Ed Vaizey – 2014 Comments on Lake District Being Nominated for World Heritage Status

The comments made by Ed Vaizey, the then Culture Secretary, on 9 January 2014.

The UK’s heritage is world renowned and the Lake District, England’s largest National Park is one of our heritage jewels. The UNESCO nomination process can be very demanding and success is not guaranteed but I believe the Lake District deserves to be recognised and inscribed as a World Heritage Site and I wish all involved the very best.
