HC Deb 09 July 1863 vol 172 c440

said, he would beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works, Whether it is the opinion of the Government that a carriage road ought to be opened from Charing Cross to the Mall in St. James's Park; and whether, if it is thought desirable, he will take an early opportunity of carrying it into effect?


said, he regretted to state that he was not able to give as full and complete an answer as he could have wished to the Question of his hon. Friend. The project of opening a carriage entrance at the north-east corner of St. James's Park had not yet assumed that practical shape which would enable it to be discussed at present. As a preliminary step the road through Spring Gardens would have to be widened, and a house removed which interfered with the proposed carriage way. He had not heard that the parochial authorities were disposed to make provision for any improvement of that kind.
