HC Deb 28 April 1841 vol 57 cc1166-7
Mr. Ewart

begged to ask the hon. Gentleman, the Secretary to the Treasury, whether it, were the intention of her Majesty's Government to throw open to the public that part of the Regent's-park which was now under grass; also, whether any communication was to be made between the Re- gent's-park and the new gardens on Primrose-hill; also whether that part of the park near Hanover-terrace was to be thrown open, and whether any chart, explanatory of the alterations, was to be laid before the House?

Mr. E. J. Stanley

said, that it was the intention of the Commissioners of Woods and Forests to open the whole of the grass part of the park to the public. It was also intended to open a road, by means of a bridge over the artificial water, from Hanover-gate to the grass plat; but it was not intended to make any bridge over the Regent's-canal to Primrose-hill, which would be accessible in the same manner, and as heretofore, over Macclesfield-bridge. With respect to the last question of the hon. Gentleman, he begged to state that it was the intention of the Government to lay before the House, in the course of the week, a plan of the Regent's-park, for the purpose of showing the contemplated arrangements.

Subject at an end.
