§ MR. CARLILE (Bucks, N.)
I beg to, ask the First Commissioner of Works if he is aware that in Rotten Row the mud pits are cleaned out, and carting going on, and the ground scraped and raked during the time when the Row is full, viz., from ten till twelve in the morning, and inconvenience caused thereby; and whether this work could be done in the afternoon, or very early morning, when no one is riding.
AN HON. MEMBER
Will the right hon. Gentleman also give instructions that where excavations do take place the débris shall be removed at once, instead of being left for two or three days?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. AKERS-DOUGLAS,) Kent, St. Augustine's
In reply to my hon. friend, I have to say that usually, and as far as possible, the gullies in Rotten Row are cleared out in the early morning and late afternoon; but after heavy rain (as on the occasion in question) the work has to proceed all day. I will inquire if any further action can be taken to meet the wishes of the hon. Member. I am informed that the débris is removed daily.
