That this House pays tribute to the Theatre Museum in Covent Garden, which is London's only gallery devoted to the performing arts and which hosts one of the best theatre collections in the world; notes that the Heritage Lottery Fund has rejected its £2.5 million bid for funding for the second time; is gravely concerned at reports that the trustees of the museum are planning to close the collection; and calls upon the Government to intervene to save this valuable cultural asset.
