§ DR. TANNER
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works if it is a fact that the 500 deer which have for years past been maintained in the Home Park, Hampton Court, are being Removed; whether the allegation is correct "that the authorities are actuated in this step by economical reasons, and that cattle are for the future to be reared in these beautiful pastures," and what other reasons have occasioned the change?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. PLUNKET,) University of Dublin
The deer which have been heretofore maintained in Hampton Court Park are being removed, some of them to Bushy Park and some to Richmond Park. The grazings will continue to be let to the Master of the Horse, as at present, but at an increased rent. There will be a net gain to the Exchequer of about £600 a year.
