§ Mr. Faulds
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether the Trustees of the National History Museum intend to charge for admission at the Zoological Museum at Tring, bearing in mind that it is a research institution and that contents were a bequest to the nation.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
When the scheme of charges for the national museums and galleries comes into operation the Trustees of the British Museum (Natural History) will charge for admission to the Zoological Museum, Tring, at the following rates:
September to June July and August Standard Adult Rate 5p 10p Children under 16 2p 4p Retirement Pensioners Registered Handicapped Visitors
All the national collections are available for research, and many of the items 191W have been gifts; no different principle arises therefore in the case of the Tring Museum.
