HC Deb 15 October 1912 vol 42 c1046
25. Mr. HOGGE

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he can now say if arrangements can be made for a popular and educative series of lectures on art in the National Galleries, Edinburgh?


The suggestion of my hon. Friend has been considered by the National Galleries trustees, but neither before nor since he last raised the question have they received any representations or other evidence pointing to the existence of a public demand for the provision by the trustees of such lectures. If evidence were submitted to them indicating that such lectures would meet a real demand and would be well supported, the trustees would be ready to consider the matter further.
