§ Colonel BURN
asked the hon. Member for Southampton, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, why the broad 1189 gravel walk through the Green Park from Piccadilly to the Mall which was recently made was being again laid down in grass, and what was the approximate cost of this change?
§ Mr. WEDGWOOD BENN (Lord of the Treasury)
The walk is being laid down in grass in order to improve the vista from Piccadilly of the Queen Victoria Memorial, accommodation for pedestrians being provided by the construction of two foot-paths in the avenues on either side of the Broad Walk. No charge falls on public funds in respect of this work.
§ Mr. SPEAKER
The hon. and gallant Member cannot expect the hon. Member to give details of that kind without notice.
