HC Deb 17 April 1930 vol 237 c3148W

asked the President of the Board of Education whether any change has been arranged, and, if so, what change, in respect of the sale and purchase of plaster casts for the use of art students in schools under the supervision of the Board of Education?


I assume that the hon. Member is referring to the recommendations in regard to casts contained in the Report of the Royal Commission on National Museums. These recommendations are receiving my careful consideration. As pointed out in the Report, the lack of space is the chief difficulty in the way of any immediate expansion of the work of the Casts Department of the Victoria and Albert Museum.
