Date20 June 1895
DescriptionAt the suggestion of Her Majesty's Office of Works, the Incorporated Kew Committee have agreed to alter their designation if this can be effected without difficulty. The intention is to omit the work 'incorporated' and insert the word 'observatory' making the title, 'The Kew Observatory Committee'. The Treasurer, John Evans, desires to ask is this can be done and if so what steps ought to be taken.
