§ 7. Mr. GILBERT
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the promenade in front of the Tower and adjoining the river was open for the use of the public before the War and was stopped during the War; and whether his Department can now re-open this part of the Tower, in view of the demand from local residents on both sides of the river and of the number of employees in the immediate district who would also use it?
§ Sir A. WILLIAMSON
I understand that the West End of the Tower Walk from the Saluting Battery to the St. Thomas's Tower has been open to the public since 1st April last. The East End of this walk will be opened as soon as the stores at present on the site can be removed.
