HC Deb 31 March 1885 vol 296 c1095

asked the Vice President of the Committee of Council, How long it is since the public have been unable to obtain a Catalogue at the National Gallery, and if there is any probability of Sir William Burton finishing the new one in time for the summer visitors"?


The abridged catalogue of the foreign schools has been revised from time to time, and is now on sale, as is also that of the British and modern pictures. The larger catalogue of the foreign schools is now under revision; but as my hon. Friend has not allowed me time to communicate with Sir Frederick Burton, I cannot say when the new edition may be expected to appear.
