Hunt proposes closure of the Museum, Libraries and Archives Council

Guardian – “The Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) would be abolished under new proposals put forward today by the culture secretary, Jeremy Hunt, to cut the number of public bodies the government funds. A statement from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) proposed that the MLA – which works to promote best practice in the UK’s museums, libraries and archives – would be wound up as the department focused its efforts instead “on front-line, essential services and ensur[ing] greater value for money” in the area. “Government support for museums, libraries and archives will continue,” it added.”
