HC Deb 18 December 1972 vol 848 cc303-4W
Mr. Spearing

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will place in the Library the Counsel's opinion she has obtained concerning the legality of charging admission to the Turner Collection at the Tate Gallery, together with any supporting documents.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

No. As I told the hon. Member in my reply to his Question on 30th November, there is no sound basis for the assumption that there is an obligation to exhibit the pictures without charge.
