§ SIR HENRY KIMBER
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works if he will state by whose order and under what authority a portion of Richmond Park is being converted into a nursery garden with pits, entirely altering its character and affecting the amenities of surrounding private residences; and whether he will take steps to obviate or lessen the deterioration which is going on.
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. L. HARCOURT,) Lancashire, Rossendale
A portion of an outlying paddock in Richmond Park is being made into a nursery under my directions. It is absolutely necessary that this nursery should be made in order to provide the shrubs which are required for the Royal Parks. When the initial work is completed I do not think it will be found that the amenities of the houses surrounding the park will be affected.
