§ 34. Sir WILLIAM DAVISON
asked the Minister of Pensions, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether, in view of the floral display in Regent's Park and St. James's Park, he will consider the possibility of making arrangements for replacing the flower-beds in the railed-in enclosure between the two pathways on the East side of Hyde Park, immediately to the South of Grosvenor Gate?
As my hon. Friend is aware, this question is one which has already been carefully considered from 1655 time to time. The First Commissioner has, however, re-examined it as sympathetically as possible, and has come to the conclusion that the attractiveness of the Spring display of daffodils is such that he would not feel justified at present in having flower beds constructed in this area.
§ Sir W. DAVISON
Is the hon. Member aware that these particular beds were specially prepared as flower beds and that there is ample space in the part of the park referred to for the display of daffodils to continue?
