HC Deb 24 June 1903 vol 124 cc377-8

To ask the hon. Member for West Derbyshire, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether he would have erected by the Serpentine a lock-up shed for the use of the bathers in the morning, and place it in charge of an attendant.

(Answered by Mr. Victor Cavendish.) The First Commissioner having made inquiry into this matter regrets that he is unable to adopt the suggestion of my hon. friend; it would not be possible to provide adequate accommodation of the kind proposed for bathers without putting up buildings which would greatly disfigure the banks of the Serpentine.
