HC Deb 08 June 1920 vol 130 c248W
Major NALL

asked the First Commissioner of Works what buildings in London are being used to house the library and other officers of the War Museum; what is the total annual charge for these buildings and the staffs therein; and whether it is intended to vacate these buildings, and to remove the contents to the Crystal Palace?


The library is installed at 45, Buckingham Palace Road, at a rental of £450 per annum, exclusive of rates and taxes, and there is no intention of removing it to the Crystal Palace, as it is considered that it should be in a more easily accessible place for research purposes. The cost of the staff amounts to £1,280 per annum.
