§ MR. MONK (Gloucester)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works whether it has been decided to lay down wood pavement between Buckingham Gate and Marlborough House; and, if so, when the work will be completed?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. AKERS DOUGLAS,) Kent, St. Augustine's
No decision has yet been arrived at as to laying down wood pavement between Buckingham Gate and Marlborough House. The matter is now under the consideration of the Treasury.
MR. GIBSON BOWLES (Lynn Regis)
Will the right honourable Gentleman remember that if wood paving is laid down—
MR. GIBSON BOWLES
Then may I ask the right honourable Gentleman whether, if it is decided to lay down wood pavement, he will consider riders on horseback, and allow a space for them outside the wood pavement?
