HC Deb 25 April 1904 vol 133 c1050
MR. COGHILL (Stoke-upon-Trent)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, having regard to the complaints that have been made with reference to the use made of Hyde Park by persons of the habitual vagrant class, he intends to propose any legislation this session for giving the police further powers than they now possess to deal with such persons.


This is a matter for the First Commissioner of Works rather than for myself and I understand that it is under his immediate consideration with a view to providing some remedy for the existing state of things.
