§ Lieut-Colonel MOORE - BRABAZON
asked the Home Secretary why the whole time of an inspector of police is devoted to stopping traffic from going through the middle arch of Admiralty Arch, in view of the fact that the public have always had the right to go through there; what reason can be given for robbing the public of their rights in this matter; and what other public gates does he intend to close?
§ Sir A. MOND
I have been asked to answer this question. Traffic passing through file centre arch has been stopped by the gatekeeper for the reasons given in my reply to the question addressed to me by the hon. and gallant Member on the1068W 28th July last. I think, however, that the centre arch may now be safely thrown open to traffic, and I am issuing instructions accordingly. With regard to the last part of the question, there is no intention at present of closing any other gates.
