§ Mr. Faulds
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether the 147W Paymaster-General obtained authority from the boards of trustees of the national museums and galleries before giving an undertaking on their behalf that they would impose admission charges at the institutions for which they are responsible.
§ Mr. van Straubenzee
My noble Friend is not called upon to give any undertakings on behalf of the trustees of the national museums and galleries. All the institutions concerned have submitted for parliamentary approval estimates of the sums expected to be earned from admission charges.
