§ MR. H. C. RICHARDS (Finsbury, E.)
To ask the hon. Member for Chorley, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether he will give directions that gravel or sand be placed upon the slippery wood pavement extending from the gateway of Constitution Hill across to the entrance of Hyde Park; and whether he is aware that up till 10 a.m. no such protection is given for drivers or riders crossing the wood pavement.
(Answered by Lord Balcarres.) The Westminster City Council are responsible for this road, and it would rest with them to provide gravel or sand as suggested.
