HC Deb 13 June 1988 vol 135 c43W
Mr. Butler

To ask the Minister for the Arts if he will give the percentage charge in non-Exchequer receipts of the national museums and galleries between 1979–80 and latest available year.

Mr. Luce

Using the figures I gave in my written answer to the hon. Member for Clydebank and Milngavie (Mr. Worthington) on 26 May, at columns259–62, the percentage increase between 1979–80 and 1988–89 is expected to be some 800 per cent. in cash terms (393 per cent. in real terms).
