HC Deb 25 June 1902 vol 110 cc7-8

To ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether some means may be adopted for making known to the various trades in the East of London which are interested in the subject, that the collection of new art furniture, which was selected by the Vice President of the International Jury on Furniture, at the Paris Exhibition of 1900, and presented to the Victoria and Albert Museum by him, is now on view at the Bethnal Green Branch of that Museum; and also, whether a rule may be established that all important additions to the Bethnal Green Museum may be properly advertised in the local Press and by handbills sent to the workshops of any trades affected by such exhibits.

(Answer.) I hope that my answer to this Question will make known the fact that the collection referred to is now at Bethnal Green Museum and is being arranged for exhibition there. The duty of advertising locally exhibits from the Victoria and Albert Museum cannot be undertaken by the Board of Education.—(Board of Education.)
