§ MR. WHITMORE (Chelsea)
asked the hon. Baronet the Member for the Blackpool Division of Lancashire, as Chairman of the Royal Commission on the Civil Service Establishments, Whether, before the issue of its Second Report, the Commission will take evidence 1227 as to the alleged grievances of the attendants and messengers at the South Kensington Museum?
§ SIR MATTHEW WHITE RIDLEY (Lancashire, N., Blackpool)
We had hoped to be able to take up the Education and Science and Art Departments during this stage of our proceedings; and, though the remedy of grievances is not the main object of our inquiry, we should then have dealt, in accordance with our usual procedure, with the case of the classes referred to in my hon. Friend's Question. But I am afraid I must state that we have found it impossible to do so before the presentation of our now pending Report.
