§ 31. Mr. GILBERT
asked the first Commissioner of Works what are the Regulations and hours for bathing in the Serpentine water in Hyde Park; and whether, 1607 during the continuance of the present hot weather and the duration of the London school holidays, he will extend the hours for children bathing in this park?
§ The FIRST COMMISSIONER Of WORKS (Sir Alfred Mond)
The hours for bathing in the Serpentine at the present time are as follow:
§ 5 a.m. to 8.30 a.m. Males only.
- 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Girls, in the special enclosure.
- 1 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. Boys.
- 6 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. Adult males.
§ These hours were fixed after very careful consideration, and I do not think that any extension is necessary.
