To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they plan to assist Salisbury Museum in its bid for a Heritage Lottery Fund grant by making a donation from money made available to Salisbury by the Ministerial Recovery Group.

The Ministerial Recovery Group has to date agreed £7.5 million of government funding to support businesses, boost tourism, and meet unexpected costs as a result of the incidents in Salisbury and Amesbury. The Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport have made no plans to allocate part of this funding directly to Salisbury Museum, but the museum will benefit indirectly through the promotion of the city and its cultural attractions.

Heritage Lottery Fund trustees make grant decisions independently from Government and it would be inappropriate to support specific applications to HLF. The Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport will support and advise Wiltshire Council in any proposals they have to bolster their cultural and heritage offering.
