HC Deb 28 February 1938 vol 332 cc757-8W
Mr. Markham

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education whether the committee, set up in 1930 to consider the recommendations of the Royal Commission on National Museums and Galleries that a national folk museum should be established in London and to advise on the practicability and cost of establishing such a museum, has made a final report; and, if so, with what result?

Mr. Lindsay

My Noble Friend understands that, in view of the financial situation then existing, the committee were of the opinion that no useful purpose would be served by proceeding with their reference, and no report was therefore submitted.
