HC Deb 30 July 1930 vol 242 c515W

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he has considered a proposal to clear away the buildings and ornamental water from the site f the Botanical Gardens in Regent's Park and to erect a series of huts, cottages, and houses to reproduce early British architecture, as well as a folk museum; and whether he has authorised the setting up of a committee to examine this proposal?


The President of the Board of Education and myself propose to appoint a committee to advise on the desirability of setting up a folk museum, as recommended by the Royal Commission on National Museums, and one of the sites suggested is the area covered by the Botanical Gardens.
