Aptly named is the Heritage Lottery Fund. Fresh from its triumphant rejection of the Crystal Palace park project as 'too modern' (the decision took a year), it is to give more than £170,000 to restore six tea-rooms by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. It has done so without blushes, even though the fund failed to back the National Gallery of Scottish Art and Design by Page & Park, where the tea-rooms were originally to be housed. The behaviour of the HLF is remarkably consistent: it gave the RIBA a 12-month run-around before rejecting its Drawings Collection scheme for the Roundhouse building in Camden. It seems to be suffering from delayed ejaculation.
