§ 20. Sir GODFREY BARING
asked the hon. Member for St. George's-in-the East, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether he has received complaints of insufficient supervision of the plantations in Richmond Park; whether the staff is insufficient for the purpose; and whether, in any case, he will take steps to ensure that the plantations be visited in future at much shorter intervals than heretofore?
§ Mr. WEDGWOOD BENN (Lord of the Treasury)
There are 308 acres of woodland, with undergrowth for the protection of wild life. These are visited twice a week by keepers. Complaints have occasionally been received, but without a great increase in staff thorough supervision seems impossible.
