THE EARL OF MEATH
asked Her Majesty's Government, Whether any application had been made to the First Commissioner of Works for the grant of a piece of land in Petersham Park as a site for a Vicarage; and, if so, what reply had been sent to such application?
§ LORD HENNIKER
said, that the Petition with regard to this piece of land was presented to the Commissioners of Woods and Forests, who found that it was a matter that should be dealt with by the First Commissioner of Works. An inquiry had been made by the First Commissioner, who ascertained that the piece of land was part of Petersham Park; and, after looking carefully into the matter, his opinion was that, at present at all events, the Petition was one that should not be granted.
§ House adjourned at a quarter past Eight o'clock, till To-morrow, a quarter past Ten o'clock.
