Recent appearances

  • Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Museums Sector 21 Jun 2018

    Museums play an important role in our lives and in society. The Mendoza review of museums was published last November, and my Department is implementing its recommendations to improve support of the sector. The sector continues to be supported by more than £800 million of public funds.
  • Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Museums Sector 21 Jun 2018

    I very much agree with my hon. Friend about the benefits of the Isle of Wight. I visited it last year, and Osborne House is just one of its many attractions. Arts Council England South West has identified the cultural development of the Isle of Wight as one of its key activities for 2018 to 2020, and we support that.
  • Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Museums Sector 21 Jun 2018

    Of course, it continues to be our policy that museums are free to enter. People of all backgrounds can and do visit them, and they are very busy during the holiday period. We always want to do more to increase access to museums, and that is a constant focus for me and my Department.
