HC Deb 20 June 1973 vol 858 c123W
58. Mr. Parker

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will take steps to associate local authority museums with the proposed regional archaeological units in rescue excavation and field survey, publication and preservation to ensure full co-operation between the excavations, conservation facilities and the storage and proper display of archaeological material.

Mr. Channon

Yes. Officers of my Department have already arranged to discuss these proposals, which are still tentative at this stage, with representatives of the Museums Association.
