Government Indemnity Scheme

Volume 684: debated on Thursday 20 July 2006

My honourable friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport (David Lammy) has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

On 26 January 2006, I made a Statement to the House regarding the Government Indemnity Scheme. In that Statement, we reported a figure of £1,286,220,279 as the contingent liability of non-national museums as at 30 September 2005.

It has since been brought to my attention that the non-national museums’ contingent liability figure, produced by the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council, should have been £1,292,909,094.
