HC Deb 02 March 1905 vol 142 c199

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that the use by cyclists of the footpaths in the Phœnix Park has rendered them unsafe and unfit for use by pedestrians; if so, whether, under the circumstances, the Board of Works will provide a suitable footpath for the exclusive use of the public who wish to walk in the park.


Owing to the absence of a Park Regulations Act the Board of Works have no power to restrict the use of paths by cyclists. I am considering the advisability of introducing such an Act, in the furtherance of which I should value the co-operation of the hon. Member and his friends.
