HC Deb 10 April 1905 vol 144 c1004

To ask the hon. Member for Chorley, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether the premises occupied by the Solar Physics Committee at South Kensington are well adapted for their purpose; and whether the First Commissioner of Works could find at Richmond or at Kew a more suitable site for an observatory.

(Answered by Lord Balcarres.) This is a matter which concerns the Board of Education rather than the Office of Works. It is premature at this time for the First Commissioner to consider the question of a new site, in case such should be thought necessary.
