HC Deb 13 July 1897 vol 51 c25

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that. the Board of Works are imposing fresh restrictions on the admission of vans through the Ashton and Castleknock gates of the Phœnix Park, compelling a round of miles to be taken by the high road; and whether he would take the necessary steps to procure permission for vans to traverse the park?


There has been no change in the rules by which the traffic in the park is regulated, the principle of which is that passes are not given for traffic to places that call be reached by county roads, the object being to maintain the amenity of the park as a place of pleasurable resort for the public.
