§ MR. CARR-GOMM (Southwark, Rotherhithe)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works whether the archway which is now being built in the Mall, over the footway leading to Birdcage Walk, is part of the original scheme for the improvement of the Mall, and if it is intended to build any other white stone arches in St. James's Park.
§ MR. L. HARCOURT
No archway is being built over the footpath. The gates form part of the Queen Victoria Memorial scheme for the completion of the Mall. It is not proposed to build any arches in St. James's Park.
§ * MR. L. HARCOURT
Yes. One thorn tree, which I am convinced was dying, has been removed under my direction.
