HC Deb 18 December 1973 vol 866 c289W
Mr. Faulds

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she is prepared to make a special grant to assist the British Museum in purchasing the John Robert Cozens sketch books, which were sold at Sotheby's recently for £120,000.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

If any public collection decides to apply for a special purchase grant, this will be considered under the usual arrangements.
