HC Deb 11 March 1991 vol 187 c423W
31. Mr. Dunn

To ask the Minister for the Arts what proposals he has to improve the relationship between the work of the Museum and Galleries Commission and the area museum councils.

Mr. Renton

The Museums and Galleries Commission enjoys a good working relationship with the area museum councils in the United Kingdom. From the grant-in-aid it is to receive from the Office of Arts and Libraries in 1991–92, the commission has allocated nearly £3.3 million to the area museum councils in England. This represents an overall increase of 15 per cent. on the allocations for 1990–91.
