Motion text

That this House notes the funding crisis at London Transport Museum, arising from cuts of 1.5 million over four years and the loss of an Arts Council grant; recognises that the aforementioned sum is a tiny proportion of Transport for London's (TfL) budget, equating to 0.36 per cent of the amount that TfL gave to its subsidiaries in 2011-12; applauds the major contribution of the Museum to the preservation of London's transport heritage and education in the city's schools and diverse communities; and calls on the Mayor of London and the TfL board to reinstate the cut funding.
