§ MR. W. H. JAMES (Gateshead)
asked the First Commissioner of Works, How soon the new rooms of the National Gallery will be in readiness for the admission of the public?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER (Mr. PLUNKET) (Dublin University)
The new rooms and staircase will be completed, so far as this Department is concerned, by the end of May. There will, however, be some further time required to complete the hanging of the pictures, so that I do not think it likely that the rooms will be in readiness for the admission of the public before the end of June or the beginning of July.
