HC Deb 25 April 1904 vol 133 cc1052-3
MR. BULL (Hammersmith)

On behalf of the hon. Member for North Islington I beg to ask the hon. Member for Chorley, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether he is aware that in some of the roads in Hyde Park motorsare not allowed, but that such roads are only indicated by a regulation in small type on a general notice board; and whether to avoid constant mistakes by motorists coming for the first time to the park, he will cause conspicuous notice boards to be placed at each end of these prohibited roads stating clearly that motors are not allowed.

LORD BALCARRES (Lancashire, Chorley)

The First Commissioner has made inquiry, and regrets that he cannot agree with my hon. friend that the present arrangement is unsatisfactory. There are constables on duty at either end of the prohibited road; they have experienced no difficulty; and are much more efficient as a warning to motorists than any notice board.
