With regard to former schemes for improving that asylum, see Journal of Menial Science, Vol. xli., p. 330. On May the 16th, 1895, less than two months before the date of the report before us, this matter was again brought before the House of Lords by Lord Belmore and Lord Ashbourne, who was then in opposition. There seemed to be a dispute as to whether the expenditure contemplated at the Richmond Asylum was to be £60,000 or £110,000, but Lord Ribblesdale admitted that he himself and the Government of the day for whom he answered (it was during Mr Morley's Chief Secretaryship) were favourable to the scheme of relinquishing the old buildings, but he said that the Board of Control could not see their way to adopting this plan. It is not easy to see why the Inspectors have not referred to this question. Clearly, the “temporary accommodation” which has proved so satisfactory must have cost much less than the smaller of the sums mentioned in the gilded chamber.
