asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Buildings what is the Ministry's intentions regarding the iron railings surrounding Kensington Gardens?

As I informed the hon. Member for Romford (Mr. Parker) on 28th April last, the retention of these railings is primarily considered necessary in the interests of public safety, owing to the considerable differences in the levels of the Gardens and of the public pavement.

Surely, if it is necessary for railings to be required for war purposes, privileges of this kind should not be allowed to stand in the way?

They will not be allowed to stand in the way if the difficulties can be disposed of.
