asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what arrangements have been made to safeguard the future of the Pitt-Rivers archaeological collection.

Within the framework of the arrangements announced in the reply by my hon. Friend the Financial Secretary on 20th June 1974 to a Question by the hon. Member for Salisbury (Mr. Hamilton), assurances have been received from the Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum that it will accept the Pitt-Rivers archaeological collection and make it available to scholars and the public.
