HC Deb 22 June 1964 vol 697 c1W
8. Mr. Robert Cooke

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works why, for the second year in succession, the grass surrounding the statue standing between Westminster Hall and Parliament Square has been badly burned by the excessive application of weedkiller to the gravel paths.

Mr. Sharples

I regret that the instructions issued following my hon. Friend's Question last year were not followed. The grass is recovering quite rapidly. We will do our best to avoid a recurrence of the damage.
