*SIR C. DUKE
I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the Government will state before the end of the Session the course they intend to take as to the introduction of a Public Buildings Loan Bill, to provide for the rehousing of the collections in the South Kensington Museum, and for other similar purposes?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Sir MICHAEL HICKS BEACH,) Bristol, W.
I cannot undertake to make any statement on this matter in the course of the present Session. If it is decided to introduce such a Bill, we should state the purport of it on its introduction, but not unless this is done.
