HC Deb 24 April 1876 vol 228 c1576

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, What steps Her Majesty's Government proposes to take with respect to the observation in the Second Report of the Civil Service Inquiry Commission, that the salaries of the Staff appointments in the British Museum "appear to be small with reference to the nature and importance of the work to be discharged;" and with respect to the opinion expressed by the Commission that the Institution "should be organized in such a manner and with such a scale of remuneration as would attract to it men of high literary, artistic, and scientific culture?"


in reply, said, that owing to the prolonged consideration of the First Report of the Civil Service Inquiry Commission the attention of the Government had not yet been given to the Second Report, nor had it yet been officially communicated to the Trustees of the British Museum. He was therefore unable to say at present what steps would be taken with reference to the subject mentioned in the Question of the hon. Gentleman, further than that the matter would be duly considered.
