HC Deb 26 July 1858 vol 151 c2126

said, he wished to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, whether, in any arrangement that may have been made for the sale or lease of Berkeley House to the Metropolitan Board of Works, care has been taken that sufficient space be reserved out of the premises to allow of a carriage entrance being made from Cockspur Street into the roadway surrounding St. James's Park.


said, he was not aware that there was any intention of constructing a carriage road from Cockspur Street to St. James's Park, and no arrangement had been made on that subject with the Metropolitan Board of Works. The arrangements which had been made would, however, admit of the widening of the foot passage to about twenty-two feet, and if at any future period it should be deemed desirable to make a carriage road from Cockspur Street into the Park, such a road might be constructed to the eastward of the passage, where the property belonged to the Crown.
