HC Deb 09 February 1899 vol 66 c340

I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works whether the Government intends to make provision for the Art Museum, Art Library, and art teaching at South Kensington on the east side of Exhibition Road, and to make corresponding provision for Science on the west side of the same road, in accordance with the recommendations of the Select Committee on the Museums of the Science and Art Department, and whether he proposes to exhibit the designs for the extension at an early date. And, what course it is the intention of the Government to adopt as regards the Geological Museum in Jermyn Street.


The answer to the first paragraph of the honourable Baronet's question is in the affimative. It is not the intention of the Government to remove the Geological Museum from Jermyn Street.
