MR. W. F. B. MASSEY-MAIN-WARING (Finsbury, Central)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works, whether, in view of the want of drinking fountains which exists within any of the following Museums: South Kensington, British, and Natural History, he will take steps to have a certain number of drinking fountains provided in each of the said Museums?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. AKERS-DOUGLAS,) Kent, St. Augustine's
In reply to my hon. Friend, I have to say that there are drinking fountains outside the entrances to the British Museum and the Natural History Museum, but not at South Kensington. With regard to placing fountains within the museums, I will consider the suggestion of my hon. Friend when the Estimates for next year are under consideration.
