asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will make representations to the Victoria and Albert Museum about deferring the closure of the Theatre Museum's Russell Street site until proper consultation can take place with the theatre community and possible sources of further funding.

The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) did undertake a consultation with those within the theatre community earlier this year and has followed up a number of suggestions and possible funding sources that arose from that consultation. The V&A has also sought to secure other sources of funding, but unfortunately has not been successful in securing the money that is needed to improve the premises.
