§ Sir A. Herbert
asked the Lord President of the Council whether he is aware of the widespread interest in the proposal to establish a planetarium, or star house, in London; and whether he will appoint a small committee to inquire into the possibilities and recommend action and to consider specially, the suggestion of the Astronomer Royal that the necessary equipment might be obtained from Germany by way of reparations.
§ Miss Wilkinson:
I have been asked to reply. I am fully aware of the great interest aroused by the proposal to establish a planetarium in London, and the matter is at present under active consideration. The possibility of obtaining suitable equipment from Germany has not been overlooked. I do not consider it necessary at this stage to set up a committee.
