HC Deb 21 October 1987 vol 120 c785W
Mr. Vaz

asked the Minister for the Arts what steps have been taken to ensure that the reduced level of grant to East Midlands Museums Services will continue to allow Leicestershire museums to cater for their public; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Luce

The allocation of grants to the English area museum councils is a matter for the Museums and Galleries Commission. I understand that the commission's grant to the East Midlands area museum service was increased by 11.7 per cent. in 1986–87 and by a further 4.5 per cent. in 1987–88.
