HC Deb 04 July 1988 vol 136 c457W
50. Mr. Bowis

To ask the Minister for the Arts when he next intends to visit a museum or gallery in London to discuss their opening hours.

Mr. Luce

I am at present undertaking a series of meetings with the national museums and galleries sponsored by my Department to discuss their corporate plans. These discussions cover the full range of each institution's activities. I encourage museums and galleries to extend their opening hours where this is feasible and there have been a number of encouraging developments in this direction.
