§ 3. Mr. H. Fraser
asked the Minister of Works whether the committee appointed in April of this year to advise on trees and on special problems of felling and planting in the Royal Parks has reported to him; and whether he will publish its report.
§ 13. Mr. G. Williams
asked the Minister of Works if the committee, appointed by the late Minister, to advise him on the trees in the Royal Parks, has completed its report.
§ Mr. Fraser
Will my hon. Friend explain the position of the avenue of trees that has been replanted in the Broad Walk, Kensington, where it is reported that foreign beech trees that were imported and planted in the avenue were removed? What are my hon. Friend's plans for the future of the avenue?
§ Mr. Williams
Will my hon. Friend tell us how the Press got hold of this report before we did? Is he aware that last Friday the "Evening Standard" said that one of the recommendations concerned 200 young beech trees in the Broad Walk, Kensington Gardens? How did the "Evening Standard" get to know that before we were told?
