§ MR. PATRICK O'BRIEN (Kilkenny)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works, whether he will consider the desirability of excluding from the bicycle track in Hyde Park, between the hours of 10 and 12 o'clock, carriages to which the entire of the park is open all day, and which are a source of inconvenience and danger to the bicyclists?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. AKERS-DOUGLAS,) Kent, St. Augustine's
I have already explained, in reply to other hon. Members, that I was not prepared, as then advised, to exclude carriages from the road to which this Question refers. I am now, however, in communication with the Commissioner of Police and the legal advisers of the Government; and I hope next week to be in a position to state definitively what can be done to meet the wishes of hon. Members who are anxious to secure the greater safety of bicycle riders on the road in question.
