§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether any alteration is to be made in the London cab radius; and, if so, could he state the extent of the change.
§ MR. LOUGH () Islington, W.
I beg at the same time to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has received representations from Islington, Hammersmith, and other vestries in the metropolis requesting that the London cab radius should be extended, as recommended by the Departmental Committee of 1895; and, if so, whether he can see his way to carry out these recommendations.
§ *SIR M. WHITE RIDLEY
In answer to these questions I have to say that representations have been received by me from four of the metropolitan vestries (but not from Islington), requesting an extension of the cab radius, but that I do not see my way to make any such alteration at present.
