Abstract: We prove that the center of each degenerate cyclotomic Hecke algebra associated to the complex reflection group of type $B_d(l)$ consists of symmetric polynomials in its commuting generators. The classification of the blocks of the degenerate cyclotomic Hecke algebras is an easy consequence. We then apply Schur-Weyl duality for higher levels to deduce analogous results for parabolic category $\mathcal O$ for the Lie algebra $\mathfrak {gl}_n(\mathbb {C})$.
