HC Deb 25 July 1910 vol 19 c1743
Mr. BURGOYNE (for Major ArcherShee)

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether, in view of the fact that the roads in St. James's Park are among the widest and least congested in London, and that they are thoroughfares to all the main stations, as well as to the Houses of Parliament, he will consider the possibility of raising the speed limit in that park to fifteen miles an hour instead of ten miles, whilst still maintaining the present strict observance of the regulated speed?


I have to consider the convenience of pedestrians as well as that of those who use motors, and the faster motors travel on the roads in question the less will be the enjoyment of the park by the majority. I will, however, consider if the limit can be raised to twelve miles per hour.
