§ SIR HOWARD VINCENT (Sheffield, Central)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works (1) if he can prevail upon His Royal Highness the Ranger of Hyde Park to extend the time for bicycles from 12 noon till 1 p.m., having regard to the fact that there is but little increase in traffic in that hour; and (2) in any case, if persons using the boats on the Serpentine can be allowed to push their cycles from the boathouse to the Victoria Road within that hour?
THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. AKERS-DOLGLAS,) Kent, St. Augustine's
I do not see my way to adopt the suggestion made in the first part of my hon. Friend's Question; but I will instruct the police to use their discretion in interpreting the rule with reference to the cases indicated by him in the second portion of the Question.
