HC Deb 27 July 1866 vol 184 c1615

said, he wished to ask the First Commissioner of Works, Whether it is proposed to repair the ravages recently committed in the Parks of the Metropolis by sums voted, or to be voted, from monies arising from the taxes levied on the Inhabitants of the United Kingdom; or whether the necessary funds will be derived from the Metropolis, which was the scene of the late devastations?


I apprehend, Sir, that the first thing to be done is to repair the ravages that have been committed in the Park. And as to the source from which the money is to be obtained, that is a question that will be taken into the consideration of the Government.
