HC Deb 08 July 1971 vol 820 cc426-7W
37. Mr. Strauss

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science by how much she estimates the anticipated revenue of £1.3 million would be reduced if children not in organised school parties were exempted from museum entrance charges and if retirement pensioners were so exempted.

Mrs. Thatcher

My noble Friend estimates that if children and retirement pensioners were exempted the reduction of revenue would be such that the charge for adults would have to go up to 20p for several months in the year.
