HC Deb 29 March 1994 vol 240 c623W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage if he will consider the establishment of a national museum in Liverpool dedicated to the history of the slave trade.

Mr. Sproat

My Department does provide grant in aid to National Museums and Galleries on Merseyside, which is opening a new permanent gallery in October called "Transatlantic Slavery: Against Human Dignity" with the help of funding from the Peter Moores Foundation. This gallery will address the history of the transatlantic slave trade.
