HC Deb 06 May 1952 vol 500 c20W
90. Viscount Hinchingbrooke

asked the Minister of Works whether he will arrange for an identification, and marking with inoffensive labels, of the more important trees and flowering shrubs in St. James's Park.

Mr. Eccles

It is my Department's policy to label the more interesting and unusual trees and flowering shrubs in the Royal Parks, and a few specimens in St. James's Park are already labelled. Shortage of labour and heavy arrears of ordinary maintenance have delayed the work, but we will get on with it as quickly as we can.
