§ 69. Sir D. Walker-Smith
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what instructions he gave in regard to the closing of public buildings on Sun day, 27th October; and what museums, galleries, and other places of public access and entertainment were closed to the public on that day by reason of instructions arising out of the said demonstrations.
§ Mr. Mellish
At most of the national museums and galleries, responsibility for opening and closing arrangements rests with the trustees of the institution concerned. Of the buildings which are my responsibility, only Lancaster House and the Banqueting House, Whitehall, were closed on 27th October.
