§ SIR ALGERNON BORTHWICK (Kensington, S.)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works whether, referring to his answer on 18th March, 1890, in reference to Alexandra Gate, he is aware that nothing has been done, and that during the late frost the danger of the narrow road was increased by heaps of snow piled right and left of it; and whether the necessary improvements cannot be effected before the traffic further increases?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS: (Mr. PLUNKET, Dublin University)
I am sorry to say that the proposed scheme for widening the roadway of Kensington Gore from Alexandra Gate to Queen's Gate has been abandoned by the Vestry of St. Margaret's in consequence, as I am informed, of the refusal of the Landon County Council to grant the assistance towards the scheme which the Vestry had asked for. The Office of Works is therefore unable to take any further steps in that matter, but we propose forthwith to set back the gates at the Alexandra Lodge, so as to give more space at the exit from the park.
