§ Mr. Callaghan
I wish to ask a question about Greenwich Observatory. I have to declare an interest in this as I am now a tenant, as the right hon. Gentleman knows, not of the Observatory but of the Hospital. I saw the Observatory the other day and it seemed to me to be getting rather dilapidated. I wonder whether it is the responsibility of 67 the Admiralty or whether responsibility has been passed over to the Ministry of Works.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
