§ SIR ALGERNON BORTHWICK (Kensington, S.)
asked the First Commissioner of Works, Whether his attention has been called to the inadequacy of Alexandra Gate, Hyde Park, for the accommodation of the present traffic; and, whether he is prepared to take steps for increasing the facilities of egress and ingress at that gate?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER (Mr. PLUNKET) (Dublin University)
I agree with my hon. Friend that the approaches of the Alexandra Gate, Hyde Park, are very inconvenient; and I propose to remedy the inconvenience by setting back the gates about 18 feet, and rounding off the corners of the approaches. I have applied for the consent of the Vestry of St. Margaret's 1028 and St. John's, Westminster, who have charge of the roads outside, and I now only await that consent.
