HC Deb 03 November 1959 vol 612 cc36-7W
90. Sir W. Wakefield

asked the Minister of Works what is the maximum number of people the east bridge on the Serpentine will safely accommodate.

Lord John Hope

I assume that my hon. Friend is referring to the Dell bridge at the east end of the Serpentine. It is estimated that at least 500 people could safely stand between the two balustrades there, provided that there was no heavy pressure on the balustrades themselves.
