§ MR. JOHN AIRD (Paddington, N.)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works if he can now state when the Military bands will commence to play in the Royal parks?
§ *MR. HERBERT GLADSTONE
A military band commenced to play in Hyde Park on Saturday afternoon last, and I am informed by the Adjutant-General, on behalf of his Royal Highness 1040 the Duke of Cambridge, that bands will play there for the present on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., or later when practicable. [Hear, hear.]
