HC Deb 24 June 1924 vol 175 c269W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether it will be possible to make a grant to obtain for the British Museum or the Victoria and Albert Museum, through the French Government or otherwise, casts of the important classic friezes at Baalbec now in the occupation of the French Government?


The Government has already made what it believes to be adequate grants for acquisitions by the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the allocation of the respective grants is left to the Trustees and the Board of Education.
