HC Deb 14 July 1953 vol 517 cc142-3W
80. Viscount Hinchingbrooke

asked the Minister of Works what plans have been made for an avenue of fully-grown plane trees in the Mall.

Sir D. Eccles

The planes in the Mall are too closely planted to permit full growth. There should, ultimately, be only one row on each side by the road. The trees which are not to be kept will be pruned so as to let the others grow naturally, and removed when they cannot be pruned further. I do not expect any trees to be removed for some years yet.
