HC Deb 30 June 1904 vol 137 cc263-4

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That a sum, not exceeding £69,100, be granted to His Majesty, to complete the sum necessary to defray the Charge which will come in course of payment during the year ending on the 31st day of March, 1905, for the Royal Parks and Pleasure Gardens."

MR. SCOTT-MONTAGU (Hampshire, New Forest)

called attention to the regulation under which the motor-car traffic in Hyde Park was restricted to ten miles an hour, and asked the noble Lord the Member for Chorley whether that regulation had been made under the Motor-Car Act, 1903, or under the Parks Regulations Act, 1872. If it had been made under the 1903 Act, then, he contended, the regulation was illegal, inasmuch as the inquiry provided for in that Act had not been held.

MR. WHITLEY (Halifax)

said the regulations which had been issued were not grammatical.

MR. DISRAELI (Cheshire, Altrincham)

said that in the opinion of a very large number of people motor-cars were entirely out of place in Hyde Park.

And, it being Midnight, the Chairman left the Chair to make his Report to the House.

Committee report Progress; to sit again upon Monday next.

Adjourned at two minutes after Twelve o'clock.
