HC Deb 05 March 1990 vol 168 c449W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what has been spent to date on the reclamation of land at the international garden festival site, Liverpool; what is the annual maintenance cost; and what consideration he has given to the designation of the site as a royal park.

Mr. Moynihan

The garden festival site was reclaimed as part of a wider land reclamation scheme in the Liverpool south docks area, the total cost of which was £10.6 million. The current annual maintenance cost of the festival park is £200,000. Royal parks are of special origin and significance and there is no intention to add to their number.
