HC Deb 14 May 1909 vol 4 c2234W

asked the Lord Advocate whether his attention has been called to an opinion of the town clerk of Edinburgh given to his town council to the effect that no charge can legally be made to the public for entering any of the public parks belonging to a corporation; and, if so, will he take steps to see that nowhere in Scotland are the public made to pay for entering their own parks?


My attention has not been called to the opinion in question. The question of the legality of a charge must depends upon the statutory or other provisions governing any case, and, as my hon. Friend has already been informed in answer to previous questions, the Government will be prepared to consider any specific instance which is brought to their notice.
