HC Deb 04 April 1917 vol 92 c1297

(by Private Notice) asked the First Commissioner of Works if his attention has been called to the scheme for the establishment of local war museums in provincial centres to contain records of individual men belonging to each locality who have served in the War and objects of local interest connected with the War; whether he is aware that the scheme has been adopted by over twenty important municipalities in various parts of the country and that a representative committee is being formed to take over and work the scheme; whether his Department will officially support the movement by affiliating it to the National Museum scheme, giving its committee representation on the National Museum Committee and entrusting it with the distribution to the local museums of the various naval and military relics not required for the purposes of the National Museum?


I am aware of the facts as stated by the hon. Member. I recognise the importance of co-ordination and co-operation between the National War Museum and the local war museums, and I will bring the question of representation before the National War Committee at an early date.
