HC Deb 27 January 1986 vol 90 c386W
Mr. David Atkinson

asked the Minister for the Arts if he will make a statement on the future of the European Museum of the Year scheme.

Mr. Luce

The European Museum of the Year scheme is a private venture which has hitherto been financed mainly by sponsorship, and its future is a matter for its organisers. It has not received any Government funds from my arts budget, and I am not in a position to offer such funds now.
