Abstract: (1) *Let A be a closed Z-set in an ANR X. Let* *be an open cover of X. Then there is a homotopy inverse* *to the inclusion* *such that f and both homotopies are limited by* .

(2) *If, in addition, X is a manifold modeled on a metrizable locally convex TVS, F, such that F is homeomorphic to* , *then there is a homotopy* *limited by* *such that the closure* (*in X*) *of* *is contained in* .
