HC Deb 08 June 1891 vol 353 c1820
DR. FARQUHARSON (Aberdeenshire, W.)

I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether any memorandum has been received from the scientific staff of the Science and Art Department, pointing out the injurious effects on scientific teaching which would follow the proposed allocation of ground at South Kensington for the purpose of an Art Gallery; and, if so, what action was taken on it?


As I have already stated, some of the professors presented a memorial to the Lord President, who forwarded it to the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
