HC Deb 15 December 1972 vol 848 c234W
Mr. Faulds

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science which national museums and galleries already possess publications departments functioning as independent entities under their boards of Trustees; whether additions to these are being set up or contemplated; and whether she will specify the institutions in which such a change is envisaged.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

The National and Tate Galleries have publications departments functioning independently under their Trustees. A company—British Museum Publications Limited—has been established with a view to assuming the functions of the British Museum Publications Department in the near future. No other proposals for change have been submitted to my noble Friend.
