§ 61. Mr. Edelman
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the rules determining the use of the Tate Gallery for publicity purposes; and why the director authorised the set of pictures of an American actress, using the Tate Gallery as a background, particulars of which have been sent to him, which appeared in a national weekly on 25th October.
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
Permission to take photographs in the Tate Gallery for publication is within the discretion of the Director in the first instance; in cases of doubt the matter would be referred to the Trustees. In answer to the second part of the Question, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the noble Lady the Member for Hemel Hempstead (Viscountess Davidson) on 11th November by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
