§ 40. Commander BOWER
asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he will intervene to prevent the erection by the Surrey County Council of a secondary school in the ancient Royal Park of Nonsuch?
§ The FIRST COMMISSIONER of WORKS (Mr. W. Ormsby-Gore)
Nonsuch Park is not under the jurisdiction of my Department, and I have no power to take any action in the matter.
§ Commander BOWER
Has my right hon. Friend any power to recommend that such historical sites in the neighbourhood of London be scheduled, with a view to saving them from so-called development?
§ Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
My power under the Ancient Monuments Act is limited to actual buildings or erections.
