asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Planning if he will state the reasons why the Special Appeal Panel have directed the retention of the railings round the garden enclosure at Campden Hill Square, Kensington, which were scheduled for removal by the Kensington Borough Council, while the railings of many other similar squares and enclosures have been removed; and, in particular, how these railings have been differentiated by the Panel from the railings of Ladbroke Square Garden, which was a freehold property specially purchased as an open space and let to subscribers in the neighbourhood for recreation and a children's playground, a purpose which has been frustrated by the removal of the railings?
