HC Deb 04 June 1883 vol 279 cc1627-8

asked the Chairman of the Metropolitan Board of Works, Whether his Board will continue the improvements recently effected in Knightsbridge, as regards the breadth of the thoroughfare, by widening the only remaining narrow portion situated between Albert Gate and Wilton Place, before the existing leases expire and the adjacent houses are rebuilt?


I beg to inform my noble Friend that there is no scheme at present before the Metropolitan Board for effecting the improvement referred to; and I am afraid that, having regard to the requirements in other parts of the Metropolis, as well as to the extent of the works and consequent expenditure to which the Board is already committed, the Board would find it impossible to entertain the suggested improvement.
