HC Deb 09 April 1883 vol 277 c1819

asked the First Commissioner of Works, Why the £5,000 voted last year as an instalment for the completion of the Industrial Museum in Edinburgh has not been expended, and why the works have not yet been begun?


, in reply, said, plans were prepared last year by the Department over which he presided for the completion of the Edinburgh Museum. Those plans were referred to the Education Department; but he believed differences of opinion had arisen between the Department and the local authorities in Edinburgh; those differences had not yet been settled. In the meantime, the Vote would be included in the Estimates.
