§ MR. CAVENDISH BENTINCK (Whitehaven)
I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether he is aware that the Archbishop's Throne which was presented to Canterbury Cathedral by Archbishop Tenison, and which was supposed to have been lost, has been found, and set up in the Library of the Cathedral, instead of being restored to its original position; and whether he will, on behalf of the Department of Science and Art, apply to the Dean and Chapter of Canterbury for the loan of this beautiful and interesting work, in order that it may be preserved in the Kensington Museum, and placed in a position where it can be seen by the public?
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL (Sir W. HART DYKE, Kent, Dartford)
I am much obliged to my right hon. Friend for recurring to this subject, and will make inquiries at once as to how far it may be possible to act upon his suggestion.
