§ MR. PICKERSGILL (Bethnal Green, S.W.)
asked the First Commissioner of Works, Whether the lands managed in connection with Victoria Park, which, by the Public Parks and Works Bill, it is proposed to transfer to the Metropolitan Board, include the whole of the property known as the Victoria Park Estate?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER (Mr. PLUNKET) (Dublin University)
There is no Estate under the management of the Office of Works outside the actual limits of Victoria Park, and no such estate is intended to be transferred by the Public Parks and Works Bill. The expression "land managed in connection with Victoria Park," referred to by the hon. Member, was used by the draftsman, as he informs me, because the limits of the Park are not legally defined in the Acts of Parliament under which the Park was formed.
