HC Deb 08 July 1903 vol 125 cc25-6
MR. CLAUDE HAY (Shoreditch, Hoxton)

I beg to ask the hon. Member for West Derbyshire, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether he will arrange that a police ambulance shall be stationed at the west end of Rotten Row, and thus obviate the delay incurred in obtaining the police ambulance from Hyde Park Police Station; and whether he will arrange for the St. John's ambulances to be removed from their present positions in Hyde Park and for the police ambulances to be substituted.


In answer to the first paragraph I am to say that there is already an ambulance stationed at the Alexandra Gate near the west end of Rotten Row, in order to obviate the delay of sending to the Hyde Park Police Station. The First Commissioner is making arrangements for an inspection of both types of ambulance by a medical expert, who will advise whether it is desirable to adopt the police ambulance in place of those now in use.


Why not consider the desirability of obviating the necessity for ambulances by improving the state of the roads?

[No answer was returned.]
