HC Deb 27 May 1976 vol 912 c357W
Mr. Faulds

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will provide financial support for the efforts of Liverpool City Council and Merseyside County Council to set up a major maritime museum in the granite warehouses of the Albert Dock.

Mr. Mulley

Responsibility for establishing a new local museum rests with the local authorities or other sponsors concerned. If the authorities to which my hon. Friend refers decide to establish a maritime museum, they can call upon the North-West Area Museum Council, which receives a grant, for advice and assistance. I understand that the trustees of the National Maritime Museum would also be ready to furnish advice.
