HC Deb 16 January 1913 vol 46 cc2297-8W

asked the hon. Member for St. George's-in-the-East, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, if he will state what areas of the Royal Parks within the county of London have been diverted to other than public uses; whether the diversions are permanent or temporary; and will he give a list of the occupiers of these areas, stating the terms on which they are occupied, as well as the monetary or other consideraiton.


The only important case in recent years has been the addition of about three acres to the Zoological Gardens. The tenancy is only an annual one. The rent is nominal (£5 per annum), but it was a condition that the public in the park should have an uninterrupted view of the animals in this added ground.
