§ Mr. BURGOYNE
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the increasing practice of roller-skating in the Portobello Road, North Kensington; whether he recognises the damage to trade resultant thereon as shown by the unanimous complaints of the shopkeepers; and what steps he proposes to take to put a stop to it?
§ Mr. McKENNA
I have not received any representations that the practice of roller-skating is increasing in Portobello Road, nor indeed any complaints in regard thereto. I understand further that the police have not received any complaints, and that they are not of the opinion that the practice is increasing in that road.
