HC Deb 02 April 1919 vol 114 c1210W
Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Prime Minister whether a decision has been made as to the housing of the Imperial War Museum; and, in view of the desirability of training naval officers for war staff work in close proximity to military officers at Camberley instead of at the great buildings on the Thames known as the Royal Naval Hospital, Greenwich, whether the War Cabinet will consider those buildings and grounds as a site which could be adapted for the Imperial War Museum with direct tube railway communication provided to London?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. The buildings of the Royal Naval Hospital, Greenwich, have long been used for the Royal Naval College, and it is not proposed to make any change in this respect. The housing of the naval staff training establishment is at present under consideration.
