HC Deb 27 July 1914 vol 65 c950W

asked the President of the Board of Education if, in the event of an exhibition of the British arts and crafts at present being shown at the Louvre in Paris taking place at the Victoria and Albert Museum, he will cause a representative collection of arts and crafts executed by past and present students of British schools of art aided by public money to be at the same time shown?


It would be very difficult, if not impossible, to arrange for an exhibition, such as is suggested, by the time the collection from Paris is to be exhibited in London, nor would there be any space available for it in the museum.
