Smith spoke as follows: “Whatever discussion occurred at Cabinet level, was a cursory discussion; it was not an agenda item. It was a very broad, sketchy discussion.

In my view, it would be foolhardy to even contemplate tampering with a UNESCO Heritage Site. I am fairly certain that Cabinet will no longer be interested in looking at that.”
