§ 48. Major Sir BERTRAM FALLE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, if, before making any new rules for Hyde Park, and especially for Rotten Row, he. will have the existing rules carried out effectively?
§ Captain HACKING
(for The FIRST COMMISSIONER of WORKS): The First Commissioner is most anxious that the existing rules should be enforced, and he is confident that the police are doing their utmost in this direction. Very few complaints have reached the Department, but if my hon. and gallant Friend sees any breach of the rules, the First Commissioner would be glad if he would at once report the matter to the police on duty.
§ Sir B. FALLE
Is the hon. and gallant Gentleman aware that there is only one mounted policeman in the Row?
§ Mr. SEXTON
May I ask the reason why this locality enjoys such a peculiar title as "Rotten ROW," and if it is at all dignified to give it such a name?
