HC Deb 23 February 1979 vol 963 cc344-5W
Mr. Faulds

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether the proposed percentage proportion available to national museums and galleries in Scotland of the moneys referred to in the question asked by the hon. Member for Warley East, Official Report, 25 January, column 222, is expected to be 10 per cent., as it was in the previous year.

Mr. McElhone

If it is approved by Parliament the grant in aid of the Scottish heritage purchases fund in 1979–80 will represent 106 per cent. of the £2 million announced in Cmnd. 7049.
