HC Deb 15 February 1884 vol 284 c1021

asked the First Commissioner of Works, Whether it is the fact that no measures have yet been taken towards the restoration of the valuable tapestries in the withdrawing-room at Hampton Court Palace, to the deplorable condition of which his attention was called last year; and, if he will state to the House what decision has been arrived at in regard to them by the Lord Chamberlain's Department, who he stated last June had the matter under their consideration?


, in reply, said, that he had been informed by the Lord Chamberlain's Department that this matter was not to be lost sight of. It was not, however, in the opinion of the officials, a matter of great urgency.
