HC Deb 23 March 1903 vol 119 c1466
MR. KEARLEY (Devonport)

I beg to ask the hon. Member for North Huntingdonshire as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether his attention has been called to the defective condition of the carriage way through Birdcage Walk; and whether he will consider the advisability of transferring its maintenance to the local authority.

MR. AILWYN FELLOWES (Huntingdonshire, Ramsey)

The answer to the hon. Member's first query is in the affirmative; to the second in the negative. The usual repairs could not be carried out last autumn, owing to the sittings of Parliament rendering it impossible to close the road; but it is proposed to put it into better condition as soon as possible. It is in contemplation to lay down wood pavement; but the funds for this are not at present available.
