§ GENERAL LAURIE (Pembroke and Haverfordwest)
I beg to ask the hon. Member for Chorley, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether his attention has been called to the wooden or plaster shutters which have bee a placed behind the open work of the architectural screen which connects the gateway leading into the Admiralty Courtyard, Whitehall; and whether he cold propose to the First Commissioner of Works to remove these shutters and allow the whole screen to be seen and appreciated.
§ LORD BALCARRES: (Lancashire, Chorley)
The answer to the first paragraph is in the affirmative. It appears that the wooden shutters referred to have been in existence for many years. The First Commissioner is considering the possibility of removing them.
