HC Deb 07 March 1988 vol 129 cc20-1W
60. Mr. Key

To ask the Minister for the Arts what assessment he has made of the extent to which plural funding can aid the preservation of Britain's heritage.

Mr. Luce

I expect the heritage to continue to be supported by a mixture of public and private funding. Objects saved with the help of the national heritage memorial fund almost always attract private contributions. In addition, the Government indemnify many privately sponsored exhibitions.

61. Mr. Boyes

To ask the Minister for the Arts whether he will conduct an audit of national museums to identify the potential for further regional development.

Mr. Luce

I have no plans to conduct such study.
