HC Deb 07 June 1917 vol 94 c368W
Captain GWYNN

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether the Government contemplate taking over the Victoria and Albert Museum for Departmental offices; and, if so, whether the injury to technical training in applied arts has been considered as well as the-desirability of keeping such art centres open for the pleasure and advantage of wounded men?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The whole position was most carefully considered, and it is hoped that as it will still be possible to keep open a substantial portion of the Museum that provision can be made for both the objects which the hon. Member has in view.
