HC Deb 29 April 1895 vol 33 c19
MR. HERBERT PAUL (Edinburgh, S.)

I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, whether the Education Department have received a memorial from the mechanics employed in the Edinburgh Museum of Science and Art, praying that they may receive pensions and sick allowance on the same scale as the attendants in the museum; whether the subject has been considered; and when the memorialists may expect a reply?


This is a difficult matter, and though I have not been able to obtain sanction to an arrangement such as is contemplated in the question, I hope still to be able to submit a further proposal in the matter to the Treasury.
