HC Deb 02 April 1919 vol 114 c1198

asked the Secretary of State for War for what reason he has closed part of the Albert Embankment during the last few years, and when he proposes to remove this restriction, so that the public may use this river frontage during the ensuing summer months?


The Albert Embankment was closed, at the request of the military authorities for disciplinary reasons during the occupation of St. Thomas' Hospital as a military hospital. The hospital is no longer used by the military, and representations have already been made with a view to the restrictions being removed.
