HC Deb 02 July 1925 vol 185 c2776
16. Captain BRASS

asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the great congestion in some of the London streets at certain hours of the day, he will consider the advisability of employing an Army kite balloon, stationed either in one of the parks or other open spaces, so that the Metropolitan Police may study from the air the congestion points and the reason for their existence, with a view to framing regulations for single-direction roads and alternative routes to relieve the pressure in these areas?


The Commissioner already has this suggestion in mind, and will consider adopting the plan when occasion arises.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

Could not the Home Secretary consider the advisability of sending officials up in aeroplanes and arranging for them to telephone back where the congestion is?


Will the right hon. Gentleman consider the advisibility of issuing fresh instructions to the police urging them to insist on slow moving traffic keeping to the kerb?
