HC Deb 29 November 1926 vol 200 cc813-4
42. Sir W. DAVISON

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether, in view of the desirability of every facility being given for the making of British films with a British atmosphere, he will consider the advisability of allowing motion pictures to be taken in Hyde Park, under proper conditions, in the mornings between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. during the summer months, at a time when the park is little used by the general public?


The First Commissioner does not wish to initiate the policy of utilising the Royal Parks for such purposes, without abundant evidence that such a change is in the public interest.
