§ Mr. Robert Cooke
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether funds are being made available to enable the London Museum to acquire a silver tankard hallmarked 1675 commemorating the Fire of London and the services of Sir Edmund Berry Godfrey.
§ Mrs. Thatcher
Yes. An amount of £5,000 is being made available, and an advance of this sum will be made from the Contingencies Fund in the first instance. Parliamentary approval will be sought in due course.
