HC Deb 07 April 1925 vol 182 cc2024-5
73. Major CRAWFURD

asked the Minister of Transport if his attention has been drawn to the condition of Ferry Lane, connecting Walthamstow and Tottenham, where a fatality recently occurred; and if he proposes to take any steps to render this road less dangerous?

Colonel ASHLEY

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave on the 16th February last to the hon. Member for North Tottenham, of which I am sending him a copy. The negotiations therein referred to have not yet reached a definite issue, but I understand that the Walthamstow Urban District Council are proceeding with the reconstruction of their tramway track, a step which is likely to expedite a general setttlement. I can assure the hon. Member that my Department will do everything possible to assist the progress of the negotiations.
