HC Deb 11 November 1991 vol 198 c346W
34. Mr. Carrington

To ask the Minister for the Arts when he next plans to visit the Victoria and Albert museum to discuss the increase in its collection of fine arts.

Mr. Renton

I have made several visits to the Victoria and Albert museum and am familiar with the extent of its magnificent collections of fine arts. Last week I was pleased to announce additional funding of £5 million over four years to the museum to enable it to concentrate conservation of these collections in a single building at South Kensington.
