§ MR. WEIR
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works if he will consider the expediency of extending the hours for closing Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace on Saturdays during the summer months, so that the public may be afforded better opportunities than at present for inspecting these places of public interest on Saturday afternoons.
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. AKERS DOUGLAS,) Kent, St. Augustine's
Yes, Sir, I think the proposal a reasonable one; and with regard to Holyrood Palace, I will see that it is carried out experimentally during the present summer. I will endeavour to secure a similar arrangement at the Castle; but other authorities have to be consulted.
