§ Mr. Conway
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what advice and assistance he has given to the trustees of the Shropshire regimental history museum following the IRA bombing of Shrewsbury castle.
§ Mr. Archie Hamilton
The Shropshire regimental museum in Shrewsbury castle doese not belong to the Ministry of Defence; security advice is therefore the responsibility of the police. Nevertheless, the Ministry of Defence recognises that such museums contain property belonging to regiments and offers to supplement police advice where practicable.
