HC Deb 05 November 1934 vol 293 cc639-40

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he is aware that the northern and western portions of the Botanical Gardens, Regent's Park, continue to present a dilapidated appearance; and whether his Department has funds to make the place tidy and will recondition these derelict parts and place them at the disposal of the general public to be enjoyed as gardens?


I am aware of the conditions to which my hon. Friend refers. The funds provided this year for the improvement of the Inner Circle Gardens have been spent, and I propose to include a further amount in next year's Estimates for the treatment of these areas, and for the admission of the public to as much of the space as is practicable.
