§ MR. B. S. STRAUS (Tower Hamlets, Mile End)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works whether, owing to the amount of unemployment in London, he could arrange to have the cleansing of the Serpentine taken in hand with as little delay as possible.
§ MR. L. HARCOURT
I regret that this is a suggestion which I am unable to adopt, but I am arranging to clean part of the lake in the Regent's Park.
§ MR. B. S. STRAUS
Is there no possibility of cleaning the Serpentine before the spring so that bathing may safely take place then?
