The Times have published more details today on the National Trust's plans to scrap its experts. They have indicated which jobs and departments might be affected including its heads of archaeology, architecture and design, as well as its national specialists in paintings conservation, photographic materials, decorative arts, furniture, libraries, pictures, sculpture and textiles. Hilary McGrady (pictured), the director-general of the Trust, has explained that the redundancies will save £960,000. The article also features details that the Trust is set on keeping only 20 of its properties continually open to the public. 

Bendor has penned this piece for the Art Newspaper with his own views on the proposed changes.
