HC Deb 04 April 1905 vol 144 c304

To ask the hon. Member for Chorley, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether the Board of Works will consider the advisability of laying out all the unoccupied portions of the area between Prince's Gate, on the West; Queen's Gate, on the East; and Prince Consort Road, on the North, as a public garden, as no other use has for a long time been, made of it.

(Answered by Lord Balcarres.) The land to which my hon. friend appears to refer is situate on the south side of Prince Consort Road, and is believed to be the property of the Commissioners of the Exhibition of 1851. The First Commissioner does not know of any other unoccupied area in this vicinity which could be available for a garden.
