§ MR. COURTNEY
I must remind the hon. Member that this ground was never opened to the public. When it ceased to be useful for the harbour works, it was disposed of to the Royal Marine Hotel Company, on condition that it should be used as an ornamental garden attached to the hotel. This condition was infringed by its being in part used as a kitchen garden; and the attention of the Hotel Company has been twice called to the fact. They have now promised to turn it into a pleasure ground as soon as the present crop shall have been consumed.
