HC Deb 02 April 1903 vol 120 c915
MR. CLAUDE HAY (Shoreditch, Hoxton)

I beg to ask the hon. Member for North Huntingdonshire whether His Majesty's Office of Works will take steps to require the London United Tramways Company to make footpaths on either side of Hampton Court Road, east of Garrick's Villa, for the safety of foot passengers before that company is allowed to open its tramway system along that road for traffic.

MR. AILWYN FELLOWES (Huntingdonshire, Ramsey)

The scheme for the widening of the Hampton Court Road was approved by the Office of Works at the special request of the Hampton District Council. Suitable footpaths are included in the scheme; the footpath on the park side, however, cannot be fully completed until the proposed new iron railing which is now being made is put up. The Office of Works have received no representations that any danger will attend the use of the tramway meanwhile.


But will the tramway be opened before the footways are properly completed?


That is a question for the local authorities rather than for the Office of Works.
