HC Deb 15 February 1951 vol 484 c591
10. Dr. Barnett Stross

asked the Minister of Education when he hopes to introduce legislation whereby he can assist financially provincial art galleries and museums, whether municipally controlled or privately owned.

Mr. Tomlinson

I am not able to make any statement on this matter.

Dr. Stross

Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that the need for this aid is very great? Can he say that he will bring in legislation to this effect when his financial circumstances are less straitened?
