HC Deb 09 August 1972 vol 842 c437W
Mr. Faulds

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what estimate she has made of the loss in receipts from admission charges at the Wallace Collection and London Museum, respectively, which would result from one free day wekly but with the exclusion of either Saturday or Sunday.

Mr. van Straubenzee

The loss would depend on the change in attendance patterns caused by a free day, which it is impossible to predict with confidence. A very tentative estimate is that the loss might be about £4,000 at the Wallace Collection and £5,000 at the London Museum.
