MR. J. HOWAED (Middlesex, Tottenham)
asked the hon. Baronet the Member for the City of London, Whether, if the Bill for the renewal of the Coal and Wine Duties should pass the Second Reading, any guarantee can be 1148 given that sufficient provision will be made out of the Duties for the acquisition and maintenance of a public park for Tottenham, which is rendered necessary by its rapidly growing population?
§ SIR ROBERT FOWLER (London)
, in reply, said, the Corporation quite concurred in the course taken by his hon. and gallant Friend (Sir James M'Garel-Hogg) in regard to the Bill. In that course the outlying districts would have the disposal of the revenue which they contributed towards the Coal Duties, and the Corporation of London had every sympathy with the object the hon. Gentleman (Mr. Howard) had in view.
