§ 103. Brigadier Medlicott
asked the Minister of Education how soon it is anticipated that Apsley House will be open to the public.
§ Mr. Tomlinson
The contractors have recently informed us that owing to unforeseen constructional difficulties there will be about 2½ months' delay in the completion of their work. As the decoration of the house and the installation of the collections have to follow, it is now unlikely that Apsley House will be open before the autumn of this year.
