§ MR. W. EWART
said, he wished to ask the First Commissioner of Public Works, Whether the public are to be accommodated by the restoration of the old, and by a greater number of new seats in Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, especially round the larger trees therein?
said, it was the practice of the Department to restore the old seats when necessary, and to provide new ones 869 in such places as the convenience of the public might require. This year about twenty-five new seats would be placed in the Parks to which the hon. Gentleman alluded.
