HC Deb 11 May 1896 vol 40 c1012
MR. E. BOULNOIS (Marylebone, E.)

I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works whether his attention has been drawn to the preaching and play-acting which now takes place every Sunday in Hyde Park; and whether he will take steps to place some check on such proceedings?

MR. W. JOHNSTON (Belfast, S.)

May I ask whether the right hon. Gentleman will make a distinction in his arrangements between preaching and play-acting? ["Hear, hear!"]


My attention has been drawn to the performances for money alluded to in my hon. Friend's Question. I am considering, with my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary, whether a new rule can be framed under which the proceedings complained of can be checked.
