asked the Minister of Works what action he is taking to deal with the unsanitary condition of the sandpit and grass in Victoria Tower Gardens, Westminster.

The sandpit is sprayed with disinfectant once a fortnight, and the sand is changed when necessary; it will be changed again very shortly. I am also examining the possibility of providing a fence round the sandpit to keep out dogs. My parks staff are under instructions to keep the grass in as clean and tidy a condition as possible, and this is done as far as the staffing position allows.
