asked the President of the Board of Education if the collection of British arts and crafts now exhibited in Paris at the Louvre is to be brought to London and exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum; if so, is it proposed to re-erect the scheme of decoration by Mr. Harry Wilson; and, if so, if he will state what educational advantage commensurate with the cost will be gained by the public?
