HC Deb 17 July 1866 vol 184 c937

said, he would beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works, Whether he is prepared to make or recommend some temporary arrangement, with a view to a permanent arrangement, for affording facilities for public bathing in the River Thames, at spots and places to be determined on.


in reply, said, he thought that the Thames was not yet in a state that would fit it for bathing, but if the hon. Member would call upon him at his office he should be happy to confer with him upon the subject.
