HC Deb 10 May 1962 vol 659 cc72-3W
Q2. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Prime Minister what rules at present exist for the protection from theft, fire and other loss of the pictures and other national treasures preserved in the national galleries and museums under Government control.

The Prime Minister

The particular rules in force in each institution are the responsibility of the authorities of that institution. They vary with the nature of the collection and of the building in which it is housed. It would be against the public interest to publish details of the security arrangements in force in any particular museum or gallery.
