Manchester's Museum Of Science And Industry

EDM number 196 in 2013-14, proposed by John Leech on 05/06/2013.
Categorised under the topic of Museums and galleries.

That this House notes with concern the possible threat of closure hanging over Manchester's Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester's most popular visitor attraction; further notes the historic significance of the Museum's location housed on the site of the world's first intercity railway station in a part of the world's first industrial city; welcomes the Manchester Evening News' campaign to keep it open; and calls on Ian Blatchford and the rest of the London-based Science Museum Group to ensure that this cultural and educational landmark is not sacrificed for short-term budgetary gains.

This motion has been signed by a total of 28 MPs.
