asked the First Commissioner of Works if, in view of the charges which have been made by officials of the Electrical Trades Union against the contractor carrying out the electrical installation at the Science Museum, South Kensington, of evading the specification issued by his Department by putting in faulty cables and generally carrying out the installation in an unsatisfactory manner, and seeing that an inquiry was held on the site, the result proving the correctness of the charges made and that the faulty work had been passed by the divisional engineer of His Majesty's Office of Works, notwithstanding that his attention had been called to the faulty work by the clerk of works on the job, he will make an inquiry into the whole matter and state if any additional cost has been imposed on his Department?
