HC Deb 29 June 1967 vol 749 cc135-6W
Mr. Buchanan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement about assistance for the housing of the Burrell Collection.

Mr. Ross

When Glasgow Corporation has prepared plans for the gallery, the Government are prepared to make a once-and-for-all contribution of £250,000 towards the capital cost, subject to the authorisation of the necessary funds by Parliament. This contribution will be given in recognition not only of the unique nature of the Burrell Collection and its importance to the whole nation, but also of the satisfactory settlement of the future of Pollok House.
