HC Deb 23 January 1962 vol 652 cc4-5
5. Sir W. Wakefield

asked the Minister of Works what progress he has made with the rebuilding of the Bernhard Baron Pavilion in Regent's Park.

Lord John Hope

I have approved a design which is acceptable to the Royal Fine Art Commission. I hope that, subject to the availability of funds, the work can begin next autumn and be completed by the end of 1963.

Sir W. Wakefield

Is my right hon. Friend aware that his reply will give great satisfaction to many organisations and individuals who have been deeply concerned at the long delay in rebuilding this pavilion? When the pavilion is rebuilt and fit for use, will my right hon. Friend take steps to see that the running track and ground around it in Regent's Park is fit for greater use than at present?

Lord John Hope

I will bear in mind what my hon. Friend has said.
