HC Deb 25 July 1934 vol 292 c1783W

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether, in view of the success which has attended the provision of more modern and commodious open-air refreshment facilities in Hyde Park, he will consider the further extension of such arrangements at an early date, including the provision of all types of meals, alcoholic refreshment, etc.?


The more modern refreshment facilities which have already been provided are in Kensington Gardens, and, as I stated in my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for North Kensington (Mr. J. Duncan) on 17th July, a drawing of the proposed extension to the Ring Tea House in Hyde Park is now exhibited in the Tea Room. The provision of meals is in the hands of a contractor, who is not restricted as to the scope of such provision, and I have given authority to the contractor to apply for a licence for the sale of alcoholic drinks with meals if he desires to make such application.
