§ * SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucester, Forest of Dean)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works whether there are at the South Kensington Museum designs by Mr. Albert Moore, representing St. Patrick and St. Andrew, intended to be reproduced for two of the vacant panels in the Central Hall; whether a design for the fourth panel, representing St. David, was made by Mr. Poynter, and is still in his possession; and whether inquiry could be made as to the cost for which each design could, if approved, or for which similar designs could be carried out in Mosaic of the character which has been successfully employed at St. Paul's?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. AKERS-DOUGLAS) (Kent, St. Augustine's
There are now at the South Kensington Museum, on loan from my Department, two water-colour sketch designs by the late Mr. Albert Moore, for two of the panels in the Central Hall. Mr. Poynter informs me that he has a sketch for the fourth panel. I am having inquiry made as to the cost of carrying out these, or similar designs, in Mosaic as at St. Paul's.
