HC Deb 25 August 1887 vol 319 c1794
MR. LAWSON (St. Pancras, W.)

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether his attention has been called to the state of Whitfield Chapel Burial Ground, Tottenham Court Road; if he is aware that it has been converted into a ground for public shows and amusements; and, whether he has any power to put a stop to the proceedings which have been described as disgraceful by the Parliamentary Committee of the Vestry of St. Pancras?


, in reply, said, he was informed by the Commissioner of Police that the ground had been let to a person who was using it as a place of entertainment, and had erected swings and shooting galleries. An injunction had been obtained restraining the person from continuing a noisy entertainment, and from giving annoyance to worshippers in the chapel. A summons had been taken out against the person under the Unlawful Fairs Act, and would be heard that day.
