The committee also recommended that the Institution should remain as a voluntary organisation, privately funded, and not be taken over by the state. This volume contains the complete report, proceedings and minutes of evidence and extensive appendices, over 1000 pages in all. Nº de ref. de la librería ROYALNAT029466
