§ 53. Mr. MORRELL
asked whether the Prime Minister's attention has been called to the statements contained in Sir Francis Fox's Report as to the damage that has already been done to the structure of St. Paul's by the heavy motor omnibus traffic passing round it; and whether, in view of the extreme danger of delay, the Government will take immediate steps to deal with the matter?
§ 54. Mr. KELLAWAY
asked if the Chapter of St. Paul's Cathedral have expressed the opinion that damage is being done to the building by the motor omnibus traffic, and that they propose to invoke the aid of the City Corporation with a view to divert omnibus traffic from St. Paul's Churchyard; and whether the Government intend to take any action?
§ 55. Mr. ALLEN BAKER
asked if the Prime Minister's attention has been called to the paragraph in the Report of Sir Francis Fox on the condition of St. Paul's Cathedral, which states that the introduction of the heavy type of motor omnibus, with its consequently increased vibration, in close proximity to the building is a serious evil, and ought to demand and secure protection on the part of the authorities; and whether he will say if he proposes to take any action in the matter?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I am fully aware of the importance of the matter, and am in communication with my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary, who is considering what action, if any, can be taken.
