§ MR. WOOTTON ISAACSON (Tower Hamlets, Stepney)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works, whether his attention has been drawn to the increase in the number of carriages and equestrians during the last few weeks that frequent the road on the north side 749 of the Serpentine, to the imminent danger of bicyclists, who have been granted the use of that road up to 12 o'clock; whether he will deem it advisable either to limit the number of carriages and equestrians, or exclude them altogether; and whether, in the event of that not being conceded, he will cause to be prepared and railed off a strip of Rotten Row for the use of bicyclists?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. AKERS DOUGLAS,) Kent, St. Augustine's
I am sorry to say that I cannot agree at present to any alteration of the arrangements for bicycling in the Parks. After I have seen their working during the summer months, I will consider the matter further in communication with H. R. H. the Ranger.
