HC Deb 03 August 1905 vol 151 c61

To ask the Secretary to the Board of Trade whether, in view of the fact that some £115,000 was subscribed by the princes and people of India towards the erection of the Imperial Institute as a memorial of the reign of Her Majesty the late Queen Victoria, and considering that the purposes for which it was originally erected have been modified and are liable to alterations in the future, he will take steps to secure that the memorial character of the building shall be expressly preserved by means of a prominent inscription on its front adequately setting forth in English and Hindustani the circumstances which the Institute was intended to perpetuate.

(Answered by MR. Bonar Law.) The matter of affixing a suitable inscription on the Imperial Institute building is at present engaging the attention of the Advisory Committee of the Imperial Institute.
