HC Deb 31 March 1971 vol 814 c408W
Mr. Grenville Janner

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what sums have been paid in each of the years from 1960 to 1970 by the Government for the purchase of paintings for exhibition to the public.

Mr. van Straubenzee

It is not possible to distinguish between money spent on paintings and other objects. For works of art and other museum and gallery acquisitions as a whole the sums, including special grants, are as follows:

among men graduate teachers, women graduate teachers, and non-graduates as a whole.

Mr. van Straubenzee

The figures for 1968–69 for teachers under 60 years of age are:

Trained men graduates 5.7 per cent. "
Trained women graduates 12.6 per cent. "
Non-graduates 8.5 per cent. "
