MA launches second annual cuts study
BY Pete Hayman



The Museums Association (MA) has announced the launch of its second survey to examine the impact of government and local authority cuts on museum services across the UK.

According to the organisation, the latest study will allow for year-on-year comparisons to be made with last year's findings and provide an insight into the impact of budget cuts.

In 2011, more than half of the museums that participated in the research (53 per cent) saw a reduction in funding, with 20 per cent reporting a cut of at least 25 per cent.

The research also showed "considerable uncertainty" over the future of the UK sector and 66 per cent expected a decline in the quality of service they offered as a result.

MA said this year's survey will also ask museums to look forward over the coming year to see how the industry is changing and what plans are being made to account for the cuts.

"The more museums complete the survey, the stronger the case the MA will be able to make," said MA head of policy Maurice Davies.

The deadline for responses is 30 April.
