asked the First Commissioner of Works, Whether his attention has been recently called to the hard and dusty condition of Rotten Row; and, whether he contemplates taking any steps towards rendering Rotten Row more suitable to horses and their riders?

in reply, said, his attention had been called to the unsatisfactory state of Rotten Row, and he feared he had nothing to add to the answer which he gave on the subject to another hon. Member in the early part of the Session, when he explained the peculiar features of the soil which rendered the condition of the Row unsatisfactory. With regard to the second part of the Question, he had much pleasure in assuring the House that he had not only contemplated, but had been busily engaged in taking every step in his power to render Rotten Row suitable for horses and their riders.
