HC Deb 05 August 1876 vol 231 cc565-6

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether it is true that negotiations are on foot between the Commissioners of Woods and the Provost and Magistrates of Stirling for the sale of the King's Park of Stirling by the former to the latter; and, whether the Treasury has sanctioned or is likely to sanction the alienation of that ancient possession of the Crown?


in reply, said, the Office of Woods had been in negotiation with the provost and magistrates of Stirling for the transfer of the Crown property under the control of the Woods to the authorities of the burgh, subject, however, to the continued exercise by the public of all the rights of way and of recreation over the land which now existed. In deference, however, to the representations which had been made to the Treasury upon the subject, that negotiation had been abandoned and the property would remain in the possession of the Crown.
