§ 31. Mr. LUMLEY
asked the Home Secretary why it is necessary to hold up traffic in Trafalgar Square and the vicinity for 35 minutes before a procession passes; and whether he will take steps to introduce a better system of communication to report the progress of a procession, so as to avoid such a long delay for large numbers of people and for large fleets of vehicles?
I find on inquiry that the traffic was held up on Tuesday last for an unnecessarily long time owing to a misunderstanding. I have no reason to think that such a mistake is likely to recur.
