HC Deb 21 June 1972 vol 839 c131W
Mr. Michael Cocks

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what are the terms of reference given by Her Department to the Science Museum regarding the scope of its work.

Mr. van Straubenzee

My right hon. Friend appoints the Director and an Advisory Committee to help him in the management of the museum. In addition, the museum makes an annual report and there are discussions on expenditure leading to annual submissions of estimates. Other matters of policy are dealt with by day-to-day references within the Department.
