HC Deb 03 July 1968 vol 767 c246W
Mr. Robert Cooke

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science, whether he will take steps to make available a series of measured drawings of the architectural metalwork in the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Miss Jennie Lee

The preparation of such a set of drawings would be a full-time occupation for a qualified draughtsman for up to a year. The Museum staff has not sufficient time to devote to it. Even if such drawings were prepared it is highly unlikely that the public demand for them would' repay the time and labour involved.
