HC Deb 07 July 1919 vol 117 cc1383-4
40. Major BARNETT

asked the First Commissioner of Works when it is proposed to remove the unsightly erections which cover so large a part of the surface of Regent's Park, so as to restore as soon, as possible the amenities of the neighbourhood and provide playing fields for the juvenile population?


The question of removing the temporary buildings in Regent's Park has been receiving my right hon. Friend's serious consideration for some considerable time past. Owing, however, to the great difficulty experienced in finding alternative accommodation, he regrets that he is not in a position to state definitely by what date the buildings will be cleared away, but he is in communication with the Departments concerned, and will spare no effort to secure their removal at the earliest possible moment.


Will the hon. Gentleman say if the personnel of this Department contains two gentlemen named Dilly and Dally?


Will the hon. Gentleman represent to the Minister in question the feelings of all true British people in this matter?
