§ 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?
§ Sir A. MOND
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.
