§ SIR GEORGE CAMPBELL (Kirkcaldy, &c.)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works whether, considering that the public are now deprived of the use of the Great Natural History Museum, not only in the afternoons and evenings but also on foggy winter days, and that the facilities of lighting are now such that the Museum has already been temporarily lighted by electricity for Societies meeting there, he will again consider the advisability of arranging to light the Museum?
§ MR. PLUNKET
The Trustees of the British Museum must determine this question in conjunction, with the Treasury. I have no authority in the matter.
§ SIR G. CAMPBELL
May I ask whether the right hon. Gentleman will have to ask Parliament to sanction the necessary funds?
