§ Mr. Faulds
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what steps, if any, she intends to take arising from the findings in Appendices F and G and the recommendations in Chapter 6 of the Report on Provincial Museums and Galleries sponsored by her Department, which relate to problems of staff gradings, salary levels, and career structure.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
The conditions of employment in museums and galleries are the responsibility of the authorities that maintain them. The recommendations in the report are addressed to these authorities. My right hon. Friend has drawn the attention of local authorities to the report in a circular which invites them to study its contents.
