§ MR. H. GOOCH (Camberwell, Peckham)
To ask the First Commissioner of Works whether he will keep in mind the question of providing a third gate for carriage traffic on the north side of Hyde Park, at the south end of Albion Street, Paddington; and whether the expense of providing a park-keeper's lodge and a park-keeper could be obviated by stationing a policeman on point at the gate in question.
(Answered by Mr. L. Harcourt.) I regret that I am unable to make provision for this gate in the Estimates for the coming year. The cost of stationing a police constable at this point would be out of proportion to the advantages of a third gate.
