Mr Hayden asked the Prime Minister, upon notice:

(1)   Did the 1966 Report of the Committee of Inquiry into a National Art Gallery recommend that provision should be made at Canberra for the exhibition of examples of industrial design, for a technological museum, for museums of Aboriginal and archaeological materials and for other educational services which, although linked with the Gallery, should not be duplicated by the National An Gallery.

(2)   If so, what steps have been taken to implement these recommendations.


Mr Gorton - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   No; the Committee recorded its expectation that as Canberra develops provision win be made for the exhibition of examples of industrial design, for a technological museum, for museums of Aboriginal and archaelogical materials and for art education services which will be linked with the Gallery and which the Gallery should notseek to duplicate.

(2)   These matters will be considered as the need arises.
