§ Mr. BUTCHER
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether he will state the approximate annual saving which it is estimated will be made by the closing of parts of the British Museum to the public in accordance with the resolution of the trustees of 12th February, 1916?
§ Mr. MONTAGU
The direct annual saving is estimated at approximately £19,000. In addition there may be considerable indirect savings from the employment of museum staff on other work.
