Sir: Not all visitors to Britain and its museums are affluent tourists. In the last 12 months I have taken at least eight Czech friends, many of them future teachers of English, to London galleries and museums in which they encountered more of their compatriots. My visitors live in small towns and they were excited by the quality and range of the displays, which exceeded what they had seen even in Prague. None of them could have afforded one entrance ticket at the prices demanded by the charging museums.
