§ MR. WHIT MORE (Chelsea)
May I ask whether any decision has been arrived at in reference to the designs for the New South Kensington Buildings?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. PLUNKET,) Dublin University
The judges appointed to consider the designs for the new South Kensington Buildings held their final meeting to-day, and unanimously chose out of the eight sets of designs submitted to them those which bore the motto "S. K. M." as, on the whole, the best. On opening the sealed envelopes, it appeared that S. K. M. was the motto adopted by Mr. Aston Webb, of Queen Anne's Gate. He is, therefore, the successful competitor. I shall cause his designs to be exhibited next week in the Tea Room of this House.
