§ MR. P. O'BRIEN (Monaghan, N.)
asked the First Commissioner of Works, When the Crypt of the House of Commons will be open for inspection by the public?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER (Mr. PLUNKET) (Dublin University)
I have communicated on this subject with the Home Office; and I am informed that the police authorities do not consider that the time has yet come when the crypt of the House of Commons can be safely opened to the public.
§ MR. P. O'BRIEN
asked, whether the right hon. Gentleman would consider the advisability of allowing Members of the 1814 House with their friends, if they wished, to see the crypt? [Cries of "No, no!" and an IRISH MEMBER: Why?]
§ MR. PLUNKET
said, if hon. Members expressed a wish to see the crypt he would consult the authorities on the subject.
