§ 64. Sir H. BRITTAIN
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Depart- 2261 ment, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, when the central gate of the Admiralty Arch was closed to traffic: whether the gate is to remain permanently closed;. and what is the reason for this action?
The gate in question, which was rarely used by traffic, was closed last month after consultation with the police, partly for the sake of appearance and partly to give additional security to foot passengers. It is proposed that the gate shall remain closed until traffic conditions render its reopening advisable.
