HC Deb 27 July 1998 vol 317 c58W
18. Mr. Gareth R. Thomas

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what plans he has to introduce an entrepreneurial approach to running The Royal Parks. [50784]

Mr. Tom Clarke

The Royal Parks are a great national asset. I am keen that the Royal Parks Agency makes the most of opportunities to increase its income, for example from events, licences and merchandise, in ways sympathetic to the amenity of the Parks and for the benefit of their upkeep.
