HC Deb 29 March 1955 vol 539 c180
13. Mr. Russell

asked the Minister of Works if he will arrange for the cobblestones on the north side of New Palace Yard to be replaced by a smoother surface.

Mr. Birch

There will be additional traffic over this part of the yard while the Clock Tower is under repair, and I do not think we should carry out improvements while this work is going on.

Mr. Russell

Will my right hon. Friend undertake to carry out improvements after the work is finished? Is he aware that it must be many years since some of the cobblestones were repaired, and some of them are in an appalling state?

Mr. Birch

We will certainly bear that in mind. I think my hon. Friend is right.
