§ MAJOR EVANS GORDON (Tower Hamlets, Stepney)
I beg to ask the lion. Member for Chorley, as representing the First Commissioner of Works whether the electric lamp brackets which have been erected along the Mall and in front of Buckingham Palace are intended to be permanent; by whom they have been put up; and who is responsible for their design.
§ LORD BALCARRES (Lancashire, Chorley)
The answer to the first paragraph is in the negative. The lamp brackets have been put up temporarily by the Office of Works. The Office of Works is not aware of the name of the designer. The brackets are trade articles kept in stock.
§ MAJOR EVANS GORDON
Arising out of the answer of the noble Lord can he arrange meanwhile to have the brackets painted a less hideous and aggressive colour?
§ SIR GEORGE BARTLEY (Islington, N.)
Will the removal of the brackets involve the pulling up of the road again?
