HC Deb 01 December 1930 vol 245 c1798
73. Mr. DAY

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he will inform the House of the improvements that are being made in the lake in St. James's Park; and whether this work is being done by his Department or by contract?


The lake is being drained in order to remove mud. At the same time, minor improvements are being made to the banks and the beds at the lake side. The work is being carried out by my Department as a scheme for the relief of unemployment.
