HC Deb 15 July 1997 vol 298 c114W
Mr. Forth

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, if he will list for the Review of Charges for National Museums and Galleries(a) the expected completion date and (b) the cost of conducting the review. [8239]

Mr. Fisher

We hope to be able to announce the proposals by the end of September.

We estimate that the costs incurred by the Department in carrying out the review of admission charges will be in the order of £13,000. This estimate does not include the costs of the research by Glasgow Caledonian University on the impact of admission charges, which has been commissioned by the Museums and Galleries Commission.
