HL Deb 27 July 1998 vol 592 c170WA
The Earl of Clancarty

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What were the criteria used to assess whether national museums and galleries made "key achievements" in 1997, as documented in the annual report of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport for 1997. [HL2677]

Lord McIntosh of Haringey

Key achievements listed for national museums and galleries in the annual report for the Department for Culture, Media and Sport are drawn from the funding agreements which the department negotiates each year with those institutions. The department reviews performance against funding agreement targets at annual corporate planning meetings with the relevant institutions.
