§ SIR W. J. COLLINS (St. Pancras, W.)
To ask the First Commissioner of Works if he will state when the ornamental lake in Regent's Park was last drained and cleaned; and whether he will consider the advisability of directing that such work be undertaken during the present winter.
(Answered by Mr. Harcourt.) The lake in Regent's Park was last drained and cleaned as a whole in 1867. A portion of the lake at the north-east corner was drained and cleaned last winter, and a portion at the south-east corner is being drained and cleaned now by the "unemployed."
