§ DR. MACNAMARA
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether his attention has been called to the recommendation of the Royal Commission on London Traffic to the effect that immediate attention should be given to the 193 provision of trams running over the Westminster and Blackfriars Bridges and along the Victoria Embankment: and whether he can suggest any means whereby the conferment of this boon upon the working people of London may be facilitated.
§ THE PRIME MINISTER AND FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR, Manchester, E.)
I believe that the hon. Gentleman's interpretation of the Commissioners' Report is substantially correct. The Government have not yet had time to consider the practicability of their suggestions, but, if Parliament were in favour of this or any other scheme, it would, no doubt, give effect to them in the usual way.
