Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

NMeM: Saved by public opinion (and common sense!)

The local MP for Bradford has been assured by the Culture Minister yesterday that they are clear about the value of the Museum to the local area and to the UK, and any closure would be 'unacceptable'. George Galloway, the Bradford West MP, went further, saying: “The museum will not close. The minister said it was a political non-starter – and that’s a direct quote.”

The news everyone in Bradford was waiting to hear came 11 days after the threat of closure first emerged, because of looming spending cuts. Thanks to everyone who joined in the petition.
