HC Deb 24 October 1912 vol 42 cc2392-3W

asked whether any steps have yet been taken for the establishment of a museum of safety appliances as recommended by the Accidents Committee; whether a new building will be erected; if so, where it will be situated; and how soon its erection will be commenced?


Yes, Sir, a scheme for a museum of safety and health appliances has been under consideration for some time. It has been decided to erect a special building for the purpose, and a site has been secured in a central position in Westminster. Plans have been prepared after consideration of the arrangements in the most important of the museums of this kind on the Continent, and it is hoped that a commencement will be made with the erection of the building at an early date.
