HC Deb 12 February 1930 vol 235 c434W

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he is aware of the neglected condition of the golf course in Richmond Park; and whether he will cause an inspection to be made so that the unemployed of the district can be engaged to do the necessary work?


I am aware that, having regard to weather conditions during the past 12 months and the continuous heavy play over the courses, their condition is not perhaps quite as good as is usually the case. The permanent staff is adequate for the normal maintenance of the courses and no additional labour can be usefully employed at the present time.
