HC Deb 23 February 1871 vol 204 c757

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether it is the intention of the Government to bring in a Bill, this Session, to enable the Trustees of the British Museum to give or lend duplicate specimens to the Royal Dublin Society and other similar institutions?


, in reply, said, the attention of the Government had not been specially called to this matter; but he should consider it to be his duty to make a communication to the Trustees of the British Museum, and ascertain what could be done in the direction pointed out in the Question of the hon. Baronet.
