§ MR. AIRD (Paddington, N.)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works if arrangements can be made for bauds to play in the Royal Parks, similar to the arrangements made by the County Council in the Parks under their control, on Saturday afternoons and on general holidays?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. H. GLADSTONE,) Leeds, W.
Arrangements have been made under which bands play at certain times in Hyde Park, Regent's Park, and Greenwich Park. The expenses are defrayed by private effort, as no public money is provided for the purpose. I am in full sympathy with the object of the hon. Member, and will see what more can be done.
