§ 53. Mr. DAGGAR
asked the President of the Board of Education, for what reason the Victoria and Albert Museum now closes at 6 o'clock on Thursdays and Saturdays instead of remaining open till 9 o'clock, as was the practice previous to 1st October?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of EDUCATION (Mr. Ramsbotham)
Previous to 1st October 499 the Victoria and Albert Museum remained open on Thursdays and Saturdays until 10 o'clock. The evening openings have now been discontinued in the interests of national economy.
