HC Deb 23 March 1925 vol 182 c72W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, what is the number of football pitches provided in Richmond and Regent's Parks; and whether, in view of the demand for more accommodation, he will consider increasing the number next winter?


The number of pitches in Regent's Park is 13 and in Richmond Park 45. One more will shortly be added in Richmond Park, but beyond this it is not considered that any more ground can be made available for this purpose without detriment to the public enjoyment of the parks.
