HC Deb 01 June 1921 vol 142 cc1085-6W

asked the First Commissioner of Works if he will take any action that would result in the preservation of the Danish moat at Fulham Palace, whose present trustee is apparently unable to meet the cost of its necessary cleansing and renovation, seeing that its obliteration by being filled in, especially under the latest proposal to utilise it for the shooting of rubbish, would be contrary to the public desire that all constructions of historical or national interest or importance should be carefully preserved?


The First Commissioner has heard of the proposed treatment of this moat, but it is not a matter upon which the Department is in a position to take any action.
