§ MR. MILDMAY (Devonshire, Totnes)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether he is aware that the roadway loading from Turnchapel to Lower Hooe, over which the Admiralty claim control, is in a bad condition and almost impassable in wet weather by reason of the mud; whether he is aware that this road is the sole means of access to the railway station enjoyed by the inhabitants of Turnchapel; and whether the Admiralty will put it in order, or whether they have an intention of giving to the inhabitants other means of access to the station.
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. EDMUND ROBERTSON, DUNDEE)
The Admiralty have never admitted any right of way over that portion of the road which they control, and I understand that, though the most direct, it is not the only means of access to the station. Orders have been given for the repair of the Admiralty portion of the road, and negotiations on the subject generally will be opened with the local authority.
