§ LORD BALCARRES
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works if he has yet appointed an Inspector of Ancient Monuments in succession to the late General Pitt-Rivers.
§ MR. AKERS DOUGLAS
It has been thought advisable not to make any appointment immediately, so that some indication may first be gathered of the probable effect of this year's legislation for the extension of the Ancient Monuments Protection Act. The appointment is vested by statute in the Treasury.
