§ MR. HOGAN (Tipperary, Mid)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the treat relief afforded by the exclusion of crawling cabs from the Strand, he can see his way to extend the scope of the regu- 526 lation to other main arteries of the Metropolis where the nuisance is now very conspicuous and contributes to a congestion of traffic?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT
Up to the present it has not been considered necessary to take any steps in other streets than the Strand, etc., with reference to cabs illegally plying for hire. I am, of course, unwilling to interfere unless the conditions of traffic render it necessary to do so, but I am prepared to take similar measures in any other streets in which I find such action to be required.
