HC Deb 29 June 1914 vol 64 cc50-1W

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether any complaint has been received by the Office of Works with reference to the exclusion of the public desiring to be served with refreshments at the Kew Gardens pavilion from the lawns surrounding the temporary tea house; and whether it is in accordance with the contractor's agreement that the choicest positions on the lawns should be monopolised by tables at which teas can only be obtained at a fixed charge of 1s., those requiring a simpler meal being relegated to a dusty tent or a few inferior positions adjacent thereto?


A complaint has just been received. The matter will be looked into, and any injustice removed.
