§ 25. Sir H. BRITTAIN
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether there is any mutual assistance between his Department and the London County Council for the amelioration of parks and other recreation grounds within their respective authority; whether any exchange of flora and/or fauna has taken place; and, if so, what has been the nature of these exchanges?
§ Captain HACKING (for the FIRST COMMISSIONER of WORKS)
The relationship between the Parks Department of the London County Council and the Office of Works has always been of a friendly character. There are occasional exchanges of gifts. For the last exchange I would refer my hon. Friend to my answer of the 29th March last.
§ Sir H. BRITTAIN
Did not the hon. and gallant Gentleman say the exchange referred to was various shrubs from the London County Council in exchange for a stag, though he did not mention the rate of exchange, and has any exchange been effected since then?
