829. Lending of objects from the British Museum and the Natural History Museum.

The trustees of the British Museum1 and the Natural History trustees2 may lend for public exhibition or, in the case of the Natural History trustees, for research, in the United Kingdom3 or elsewhere, any object comprised in the museums' collections4. In deciding whether or not to lend any such object, and in determining the time for which, and the conditions subject to which, any such object is to be lent, the trustees must have regard to the interests of students and other persons visiting the museums, to the physical condition and degree of rarity of the object in question
