§ Mr. David Atkinson
asked the Prime Minister if, in the light of reductions in the United Kingdom's spending on international cultural affairs arising from the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation, Her Majesty's Government will make it their policy to use some of the savings from withdrawal from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation to provide funds to the European museum of the year scheme; and if she will make a statement.
§ The Prime Minister
No. The money saved from our contribution to UNESCO will be used to further educational, scientific and other activities designed to benefit developing countries, particularly in the Commonwealth.
