asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will consider a revision of the rules with regard to the parking of cars at the Royal Albert Hall, in view of the inconvenience of the present arrangements.

The rules governing the parking of cars at the Royal Albert Hall are contained in the directions to constables issued by the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis under the powers conferred upon him by Section 52 of the Metropolitan Police Act, 1839, and I have no power to revise those directions. I have, however, consulted the Commissioner of Police who tells me that he has reviewed the existing arrangements and does not consider any alteration desirable.
