15. Mr. E. Fletcher

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will arrange for the National Gallery, the Tate Gallery and other nationally-owned galleries and museums to waive their copyright charges for reproductions of works of art by authors of scientific and artistic books and other works of scholarship.

Mr. R. A. Butler

They often do so, at their discretion.
