HC Deb 16 February 1905 vol 141 c323
MR. NANNETTI (Dublin, College Green)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been drawn to the regulations which have been made by the Police Commissioners in Dublin, with reference to the hazards for the hackney carmen of that city; whether any complaints have been made by the frontage owners of the streets where these regulations are being put in force; and whether he will take steps to secure to the carmen the old hazards which they have used for years past, and which are essential to their means of livelihood.


The changes in the hazards for hackney vehicles were made owing to increased traffic and the consequent necessity of avoiding obstruction in the streets, and inconvenience to the public. No complaints of the character mentioned have been received by me; but if the hon. Member will communicate the details of a specific case I shall make further inquiry.


Has not the Commissioner of Police received a communication from the frontage owners protesting against the hazards being removed?


I must ask for notice of the Question.
