§ 76. Viscount CURZON
asked the Minister of Transport whether the Metropolitan police have or can be given power to divert slow-going traffic from the more important and congested streets to less important parallel routes during the hours of greatest congestion?
§ Mr. NEAL
The existing powers are given by Section 11 of the Metropolitan Streets Act, 1867. The Advisory Committee have the question of additional powers under consideration in connection with a review of the proper control of London traffic.
§ Mr. CHADWICK
Has the hon. Gentleman contemplated the possibility of prohibiting anything but mechanically propelled traffic?
