SIR JAMES LAWRENCE
asked the Chairman of the Metropolitan Board of Works, When the remaining toll bridges over the Thames will be thrown open free to the public?
§ SIR JAMES M'GAREL-HOGG
, in reply, said, there was no authority for the statement which had appeared in the public prints that five additional bridges would be thrown open on the 17th instant. The second section of five bridges would, however, be opened within three weeks. He could not at present fix the precise day. There were beyond that number three bridges which would remain to be thrown open.
