§ MR. J. J. CLANCY (Dublin County N.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, what has been done to redeem the promise made last year by him to inquire into the advisability of extending the hours during which the Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin, Dublin, are open to the; public, and what reason there is for not keeping those gardens open all day as is done in the case of the People's Gardens, in the Phœnix Park?
§ THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL (Mr. A. D. H. ACLAND, York, W.R., Rotherham)
Some months ago I arranged that the Botanic Gardens should be open for some time longer in the summer than has hitherto been the case. I cannot supply the details at such short notice, but I shall be happy to furnish them to the hon. Gentleman if he so desires.
