§ Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
asked the Prime Minister whether he intends to introduce legislation to give effect to those recommendations of the recent Royal Commission on National Museums and Galleries which would require the amendment of existing Statutes; whether the boards of trustees or other bodies concerned in the management of the several institutions will be consulted as to the form of any such legislation; and whether the recommendations of the Royal Commission are accepted in principle by His Majesty's Government?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
Most of the recommendations referred to were made in the second part of the Final Report of the Commission, which was published on the 16th instant. It has been arranged that this Report is to be discusseed at the next meeting of the various boards or other bodies concerned. The Government will decide thereafter what legislation to 871W introduce, and will consult the institutions affected before introducing the legislation.
