'Bias' in Ulster Museum books
There is a distinct bias in books and literature being sold at the Ulster Museum, the Assembly has heard.
DUP MLA Brenda Hale told MLAs she was left "disappointed" after a visit to the museum over Easter.
She said: "As a very keen supporter of culture, arts and the Ulster Museum I was very disappointed on Easter Monday when I visited with my daughter to find a distinct bias in the books and literature for sale in the shop of all things of a nationalist and republican nature.
"Items of British, Ulster Scots or Orange or even the war time were practically non existent, thus providing a biased or one-sided view."
During questions to the Culture Minister, the Lagan Valley MLA called for a more "balanced view" that would also include the arrival of the Vikings, Normans and Plantation settlers.
Caral Ni Chuilin said her department had allocated around £3.5 million to "enhance and enrich" literature in museums and other cultural facilities across Northern Ireland.
She said she would raise the concerns with the Ulster Museum but also queried how some groups had spent the funding.
"I am disappointed that the member wasn't happy with her visit or indeed with the exhibitions or the literature sold.
"I am happy to write to the museum to that effect."
