§ SIR G. GREY
said, that an arrangement had been made by which the Dean and Chapter had consented to open the area of St. Paul's Cathedral free of charge. Of course he referred only to the lower part of the Cathedral, and not to the dome, the whispering gallery, and the like; but only to that part for seeing which a fee of 2d. 1357 had heretofore been paid. In order to carry out the arrangement, it would be necessary to obtain an Order in Council, which would be done as early as possible; but the Dean and Chapter, in anticipation of that Order, would open the lower part of the Cathedral on and after May I without charge.
