§ MR. MASSEY-MAIN WARING (Finsbury, Central)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury, what action the Government intend to take in. consequence of the result of the Division last Tuesday night on the opening of museums and art galleries on Sundays?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY
In answer to my hon. Friend I have to say that the two museums which are under the direct control of the Government are the Bethnal Green and South Kensington Museums. We are making communications with the trustees of the British Museum and the National Gallery, and when we have further time to consult with those bodies I shall make a general statement to the House on the subject. [Cheers.]
§ MR. A. J. MUNDELLA (Sheffield, Brightside)
Is not the Natural History Museum also under the control of the Government?
