HC Deb 22 July 1912 vol 41 c789
74. Mr. HOGGE

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether, in view of the great success attending the lectures at the Royal Museum, Edinburgh, he can see his way to arrange for a series of popular lectures at the National Picture Gallery during the summer evenings or on Saturday afternoons, with a view to increasing the public knowledge of and interest in art?

The SECRETARY for SCOTLAND (Mr. McKinnon Wood)

I am in communication with the board of trustees of the National Galleries for Scotland with reference to the suggestion of my hon. Friend. There is, of course, considerable difference between the lectures at the Royal Museum, which were given on winter evenings, and those which are suggested for the National Gallery on summer evenings or Saturday afternoons.
