HC Deb 29 March 1889 vol 334 c1158

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether it was in the power of the Chief Commissioner of Police to regulate the omnibus services; and, if so, whether he would give instructions for the discontinuance of the running of omnibuses along South and North Audley Streets, the former of the two streets being already inadequate for the present traffic, and the alternative route by Park Lane being but a little longer distance?


The Commissioner of Police has been advised on a former occasion that it is not in his power to regulate omnibus services in the manner suggested by my hon. Friend (whom I beg to refer to the concluding proviso in Section 11 of the 30 and 31 Vic., c. 134) even in streets within the special limits of that Act. The streets named in the question are not within the special limits.
