§ MR. E. BOULNOIS (Marylebone, E.)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works whether he is aware that a very numerously and influentially signed Petition has been presented to the London County Council for the opening of the Clarence Lanes as an additional carriage way entrance to Richmond Park, and whether he will again urge upon the London County Council and the Wandsworth Board of Works the necessity for opening these additional approaches to Richmond Park so much needed by the inhabitants of London; and whether he will render the assistance promised in the Correspondence ordered by the House to be printed 31st August 1895?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. AKERS-DOUGLAS,) Kent, St. Augustine's
I was not aware of the presentation of a Petition to the London County Council on this subject. Though I am most anxious to see this roadway made, and am quite ready to give the assistance promised in 1895, I cannot undertake, having regard to the result of previous communications, to press the matter again on the County Council and the Wandsworth Board of Works.
