§ SIR HENRY HOWORTH
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works whether the Government propose on an early date to continue and complete the Exhibition Buildings at South Kensington, and thus furnish suitable accommodation for the most valuable collections of their kind in Europe; and, if so, if he 1019 can see his way to proposing a Supplementary Estimate this year to commence this much needed work?
§ MR. AKERS-DOUGLAS
The question of continuing the Exhibition Buildings at South Kensington is receiving the attention of the Government. The existing plans having been prepared on the assumption that the buildings were required partly for the purposes of the secretariat may have to be reconsidered in connection with the recommendations of the Royal Commission on Secondary Education. Under these circumstances, I do not see my way to proposing a Supplementary Estimate this year.
