HC Deb 11 November 1991 vol 198 cc346-7W
37. Mr. Pike

To ask the Minister for the Arts what industrial museums he has visited in the last 12 months in the north-west.

Mr. Renton

Since my appointment as Minister for the Arts in November 1990 I have visited the Quarry Bank mill at Styall in Cheshire, and the museum of science and industry in Manchester in June. Last week on a return visit to Manchester, I was pleased to announce a special grant of £200,000 in 1992–93 towards that museum's 1830s warehouse project.
