Nerissa Chesterfield appears on the BBC Radio 4 Today Programme
In the interview Nerissa argues that the taxpayer shouldn’t be subsidising museums and forcing cultural interests on people. If you do, you are forcing taxpayers to pay for something whether they use it or not.
In the last 10 years we have seen spending cuts in a number of areas such as policing and education. This is about prioritisation and spending public money on regional museums would not be a sensible use of money.
