§ MR. J. HOLMS
asked the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, When the works of the new building for completing the South Kensington Museum and Bethnal Green Museum are likely to be resumed?
§ VISCOUNT SANDON
Sir, both these matters involve a largo expenditure of public money. The Government have not as yet had time to give these subjects such consideration as would enable them to decide what further buildings are necessary. Under these circumstances, they are not prepared to undertake any new buildings this year.
