HC Deb 20 December 1973 vol 866 c386W
Mr. Faulds

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what representations have been made to him by the Board of Trustees of the Ulster Museum that the proposed introduction there of admission charges on 2nd January ought to be postponed; if he will review the matter in the light of the grounds given for those representations; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. van Straubenzee

Representations made by the Trustees of the Ulster Museum were based on the present energy crisis. My right hon. Friend does not consider that this constitutes sufficient grounds for postponement.
