asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he is aware that valuable national relics are rapidly deteriorating in the dockyard museums of Portsmouth and Chatham owing to the lack of competent curatorship; and whether he will take steps to see that either curators are appointed or periodical inspections are made from time to time by experts?

As regards the suggested appointment of curators, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply Which I gave him on 19th February [OFFICIAL REPORT, columns 1405–6]. The same considerations apply to the suggestion that periodical inspections should be made by experts.
