HC Deb 22 July 1983 vol 46 c252W
Sir Hector Monro

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he is now able to announce a decision on the future management of the golf courses in Richmond park.

Mr. Macfarlane

Yes. These courses within the royal park are at present operated by my Department. I have concluded that it would be more appropriate for them to be managed and operated privately. Advertisements will appear shortly inviting proposals from interested applicants.
