The Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) is a non-departmental public body in England and a registered charity with a remit to promote improvement and innovation in the area of museums, libraries and archives. It has functions that span the UK and it advises the UK government on policy and priorities for these areas in England, and receives funding from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). The Chairman is Sir Andrew Motion (lately Poet Laureate) and the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is Roy Clare CBE. On July 26 2010 it was announced that the MLA would be abolished under new proposals put forward by the culture secretary, Jeremy Hunt, to cut the number of public bodies the government funds.
