Dear Royal Museums Greenwich,

Over the years institutions around the UK, including Royal Museums Greenwich, have benefited from membership of the European Union. These benefits have included increased tourist numbers, eligibility for European funding paid for by UK and EU27 tax payers, the ability to easily hire the most appropriate staff for the job, and much more.

I would be grateful if you could provide the following information.

a: Total number of visitors you received
b: If known, the breakdown of visitors from the UK, EU27 countries, and non-EU countries

Ideally, the response to section 1 should include your current reporting period and the previous 5 years.

a: Total number of staff employed by Royal Museums Greenwich
b: If known, the breakdown of staff from the UK, from EU27 countries, and non-EU countries

Ideally, the response to section 2 should include your current levels and those of your previous 2 reporting periods, where known.

a: A breakdown of European funding received by Royal Museums Greenwich over the past 5 years
b: A breakdown of any European funding expected or guaranteed in the future.

Ideally, the response to section 3 should include a breakdown of funding received from the different European funding schemes, for example European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), European Social Fund (ESF), etc. and ideally the response should include a summary of the primary aims or beneficiaries of schemes funded by European funding.

a: Where known, any temporary or permanent exchanges of exhibits made possible by the UK's membership of the European Union

Ideally, the response to section 4 should include those during the past 5 years.

Yours faithfully,

Scott Daniells
