HC Deb 26 June 1989 vol 155 c328W
72. Mr. Butler

To ask the Minister for the Arts if he will make a statement on the development of the independent museum sector.

Mr. Luce

The independent museums sector represents over half of the 2,000 or so museums and galleries in the United Kingdom. Independent museums give great pleasure to the visiting public, and I am delighted to see their continued successful development.
