HC Deb 29 November 1928 vol 223 cc585-6
32. Sir R. THOMAS

asked the Minister of Health with regard to the preservation of the London squares, whether, if time cannot be allotted during this Session for a detailed Bill to protect them, he will introduce a brief Measure enacting that no more of these open spaces shall be sold until such time as the matter can be dealt with in detail?


I fear that it is impracticable to introduce such a Measure this Session in view of other claims on Parliamentary time.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Royal Commission on London Squares recommended early legislation, and that since that report was issued Trinity Square, Brixton, has already been sold?


I am afraid that does not give us any more Parliamentary time.
