HC Deb 07 June 1887 vol 315 c1224
MR. LAWSON (St. Pancras, W.)

asked the First Commissioner of Works, Whether the Royal Botanical Gardens and the Toxopholite Grounds form part of the Regent's Park; and, whether the Commissioners of Woods and Forests have any powers of control over these Societies; and, if so, or, in any case, it would be possible to increase their utility and beneficence by the admission of the general public to their grounds, under certain conditions, at stated times?


, in reply, said, he had made inquiries as to this subject, which, he understood, was one entirely for the Treasury Authorities, and the Question ought, therefore, to be directed to the Secretary to the Treasury.
